Jackson County Attorney Resigning
MAQUOKETA, Iowa (AP) - The Jackson County attorney says he'll resign to go into a private practice.
The Quad-City Times reports Chris Raker made his announcement Tuesday at a Jackson County Supervisors meeting.
Raker was appointed county attorney in 2008 and had been an assistant county attorney for a year before his appointment.
The 35-year-old Raker says he'll resign on Sept. 1 and go into a private practice with Maquoketa attorney Ken Wright.
The board can either schedule a special election or appoint a replacement.
Board members didn't take action Tuesday but plan to meet next week to discuss the situation.
