County circuit clerk gets her job back — again

VICKSBURG — Warren County Circuit Clerk Shelly Ashley-Palmertree was out of a job for about 35 minutes today.

But her job was saved a second time by Judge Isadore Patrick.

Patrick signed an order returning Ashley-Palmertree to her job from which the Warren County Board of Supervisors had removed her earlier in the day.

The judge’s action gives Ashley-Palmertree until next Monday to file a new surety bond.

The Vicksburg Post reports that a hearing before Patrick is set for next Tuesday.

Ashley-Palmertree’s bond expired June 13 after Chicago-based Western Surety Company asked to release itself in the wake of questions over her accounting procedures.

Lawsuits are pending in Hinds County Chancery Court over a demand from the county and state that Ashley-Palmertree repay $661,751.
