re: Fire the clerk....but

No, an elected official cannot be fired--which I think you knew. I don't think they can be impeached, either. Would it need to be a recall by the people?

Usually the police chief is appointed by the city mayor. But the sheriff is elected by the people. So a sheriff has more "power" than the police chief, and doesn't serve at the pleasure of the mayor.

Fools find no pleasure in understanding but delight in airing their own opinions. -Proverbs 18:2 NIV
