MARSHALL, IL. (ECWd) -
The Clark County Board held a meeting this morning and took action on a couple items.
First, they effectively removed the Circuit Clerk from office by declaring the seat vacant due the Clerk's inability to obtain the appropriate amount of bonding as required by state law (election code).
Kathy Ramsey, now former Clark County Circuit Clerk, was recently charged with Felony Official Misconduct and the case is working its way thru the court system. She pled not guilty, and her daughter who was also charged pled guilty. Due to a mandate for a Bond, that she could no longer obtain, the board declared her seat vacant.
The County Board then appointed Ami Shaw to the position of Clark County Circuit Clerk.
