It's not strange, you're just looking at it backwards. The county clerk's jurisdiction is the entire county, of which the city is only a portion. County clerks are typically the closest thing you get to a mayor at the county level. They're responsible for not only all the record keeping, ID issuing, and registrations and licensing (including marriage licensing), they're responsible for handling elections (voter registrations, choosing and setting up the voting machinery, running the election, and recording the results), zoning permits, tax assessments and collections, and all sorts of other little stuff pertaining to the running of the county government.

It is a rather significant job with big responsibilities. Which makes it all the more terrible that she refuses to do it correctly.

Hah, my father was mayor of a small town about the same size (served 4 terms). He did this while working as full time litigation attorney- mayors of towns this size usually have a day job.

What's weird here, in fact, is that the mayor of the town makes *so much*. A town of 7,000 typically has a city manager hired to actually run the town- the mayor is more often a council member with limited blue ribbon responsibilities.

Kim Davis walks out to Eye of the Tiger.

Mike Huckabee is absolutely awful at rabble-rousing.

Huckabee's speech was playing in the work lunchroom today when I was microwaving some leftovers. He was doing the thing where a Republican says the judges are being tyrants.
