Clerk to hire former clerk
With so many different special districts in play, it’s possible to have many different combinations of candidates and issues for voters in different precincts, Van Bergen said. And it’s crucial to make sure everything matches up correctly, he said.
Deputy Clerk Gayle Jensen described the matching task as tedious and labor-intensive, but necessary.
Van Bergen sought and obtained authorization from the county board of commissioners to hire former clerk Jan Coleman to perform the task. He said that offered the office the best chance of meeting the April 22 deadline.
