Seriously, what is it with the local GOP and finding folks to count the money? First the truck driver whose abacus was cracked, and now a bonding issue. Maybe the kids at Prosser could take on the auditor's post as a class project?
Floyd insurer: Bonding questions raised about interim auditor Clark, by Grace Schneider (C-J)
Floyd County leaders say unexpected concerns have been raised recently about arranging a surety performance bond for incoming interim Floyd County Auditor Scott Clark.
The county’s insurance agent, Kevin Paul, contacted Floyd officials last Thursday to alert them that an insurance carrier it uses to line up surety bonds indicated it would not issue a bond for Clark, who is scheduled to take office this Monday, said Theresa Plaiss, a former Floyd County auditor who now works as an administrative assistant to Floyd operations director Don Lopp.
The reasons were not specified, but “something had come to their attention” in checking into Clark. Paul had called to inform officials of the development and of the potential he’d need to find another carrier that sells high-risk policies, Plaiss said.
Clark — a certified public accountant who also serves as a tax adviser for Intuit, the parent company of Turbotax — declined to comment and referred a reporter to Rick Fox, the Floyd County attorney. Fox said he’s still looking into the matter.
