The Fayette County Board voted 9-4 on Tuesday to appoint Mary Sue Ruot to the circuit clerk position, but not before some discussion about politics being involved in the appointment.
Doing most of the talking was board Chairman Steve Knebel, who said he was prepared to appoint Ruot to the post, despite opposition from Republicans.
At issue was whether it was fair to appoint Ruot to the post vacated by the retirement of Marsha Wodtka, because Ruot is a candidate for circuit clerk in the November general election. She is being opposed by Republican Nona Nonie Beckman.
