A dispute has erupted between the two candidates for county clerk in Tuesday’s Democratic primary.
Candidate Richard Medina is questioning why his opponent, Melanie Rivera, a county clerk’s employee, was in the office on Tuesday. He noted a county policy that mandates employees running for county office be on leave for 30 days before an election.
Rivera, supervisor of the clerk’s Bureau of Elections, confirmed she was in the office for five minutes and that it was her first time there since she started her leave a few weeks ago.
