We and others have reported about the departure of several employees in the Knox County Criminal Court Clerk’s Office.
There’s a little more info in these that you wonks out there may care to see.
Also, here’s the hiring information for Craig Leuthold, who left as interim trustee when Ed Shouse moved over from Commission to the fee office. Leuthold took a spot under Phil Ballard, the county’s property assessor, where he was working previously. Here’s that info:
He’s taking quite a pay cut from the trustee gig, but he was making similar money in the property assessor’s office before. Couple ways to look at this move:
- A sweet government gig for a former elected official and son of a well-known political figure in the county, Frank Leuthold.
- A job for someone who knows a significant amount about the operations and business of the county to interface with the public and media. Here’s his resume from the web site for his run for trustee.
Either way, Leuthold is sticking around in/near the periphery of Knox County politics for a while longer. Make of it what you will.
