Election position vacated

August 8, 2014


The Clay County Board of Supervisors will need to appoint a new election commissioner for District 5 after the commissioner from the district moved to another district.
Now former District 5 Commissioner Maxine Brooks previously lived on Redwine Circle, but recently moved to Snyder Street, which is in District 2. At Thursday’s board meeting, board attorney Bob Marshall said that for any county office, if the person is elected for a specific district, they have to live in that district. If they move they must vacate the office.
Brooks said she was unaware that her new residence wasn’t in District 5, and said she would look for another place to live that is in District 5.
“If you find a place in District 5 in the future, then you can certainly run for the office again,” District 5 Supervisor Floyd McKee said. “As an election commissioner, you should have known where your district boundaries were located.”
