Over 24 employees have quit the Mesa County Clerk’s office since Tina Peters took over the office just 15 months ago.
All these vacant positions must put the Clerk’s office in a pretty dire situation, considering that it’s fully staffed at 32 employees.
You’d think the Clerk would be scrambling to hire qualified people to fill these open positions, especially in an election year, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.
The Job Openings web page for Mesa County lists vacancies in the Clerk’s office for Customer Service, Motor Vehicle and Elections Managers. Some of these positions have been unfilled for months.
But it doesn’t seem to be due to a lack of qualified applicants.
