How Many "Chief" Deputies Can one Five Man Dept Have?
Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Troy McCoy":
If McCoy was appointed "chief deputy" without civil service protection, he can run; if Walton is still chief deputy, then McCoy can not run.
The ethics commission has ruled that 5 USC 1501 only applies if the Sheriff's office is financed by the us government by more than a "de minimis" amount.
They are not, so 5 USC 1501 does not apply here, but the civil service rules do. Someone needs to find out who is the chief deputy and when that appointment/change was made.
