Letter to the Editor: DeWitt County Circuit Clerk Has Full-Time Job Elsewhere

I read an article which  states that the current Circuit clerk has a full time job which prevents her from being in the office during what any sane person would consider normal office hours. The duly elected clerk stated that she does come to the office several nights a week on sometimes on weekends. She is being paid a salary by the citizens of this county ($58,000.00 + a year). The county board chairman said he was aware of the situation. The clerk stated she had a legal opinion on the matter. What she does not have is any sense of decency or respect for the citizens who pay her salary. She should be asked to resign immediately. Those public officials who were aware of this might want to apologize to the citizens for this outrage. Monetary greed is more important than ethics and honorable elected service. Shame on you.
