Syracuse, N.Y. - There will not be a Special Election to select Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney's replacement.

Onondaga County Democratic Election Commissioner Dustin Czarny took to Twitter to explain why.

It will be up to the Onondaga County Legislature to decide who will serve out the remaining time term. 

Onondaga County Legislature Chairman Ryan McMahon says that he will ask his fellow legislators to select him to take over once Mahoney officially steps down.

If the legislators can not come to a majority decision about a replacement, Deputy County Executive Bill Fisher will serve on an interim basis.

Mahoney announced on Monday that she was leaving county government to take on a new role as the COO of SUNY ESF.
