The Buchanan County Clerk has fired her assistant, who beat her in Tuesday’s election. Clerk Kelley Stahlin says she fired assistant clerk Mary Baack-Garvey saying she has refused to follow “standard everyday procedures.” She says the dismissal had nothing to do with politics. Baak-Garvey admits sending out e-mails indicating she does not like Stahlin, and will not keep her as an assistant when she takes office in January.
