Rukavina’s St. Louis County Board replacement sworn-in

Ironically, the man who was elected to replace the late Tom Rukavina on the St. Louis County Board was sworn in Monday, the same day Rukavina died during a battle with leukemia.

County officials say the ceremony for Paul McDonald was a somber one, coming just hours after many learned of Rukavina’s death.

McDonald told the crowd he has big shoes to fill.

He’ll represent the county’s 4th District, which covers much of northern St. Louis County and some townships just north of Duluth.
