Election commission looking for new coordinator

CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - The Craighead County Election Commission began the search for a new election coordinator Friday.

The commission went into executive session after concluding business listed on their agenda.

Commission Chair Jeannette Robertson said they're happy to get the selection process started.

"We're very excited about this," Robertson said. "We have some excellent, qualified candidates applying for the position. So, we look forward to being able to interview them."

The commission interviewed 9 of the 19 candidates today.

The position is open because former election coordinator Sandra Taylor resigned after tens of thousands of dollars of election reimbursement went unbilled.
