Fuller will be missed

May 9, 2013

I would like to take a moment to thank Mrs. Wendy Fuller, our former Clay County Election Commissioner for all of the hard work and years she has put in with the county.
On Thursday morning, the Clay County Board of Supervisors voted to dismiss Fuller as an Election Commissioner. The vote was 3-2.
The board had a tough job to do, and they did it the best way that it could have been handled.
The circumstances surrounding Fuller’s dismissal should not blemish her overall record of service to the citizens of Clay County.
