Johnson County Seeking New Deputy Attorney
Johnson County Attorney Ken DeCock is searching for a new deputy county attorney to replace current Deputy Attorney Ralph Boynton.
He has posted the opening on the Wyoming State Bar website.
According DeCock, Boynton was originally hired as the Deputy Attorney on a part-time, contract basis, but has since since decided his retirement plans do not allow full-time deputy work, which has prompted the search for a new deputy attorney.
DeCock explains further.
DeCock said he has added support staff in the office and feels that at this time, there is no need for a second deputy attorney, but that may change with the addition of the new new District Court Judge that will be seated in Buffalo's new judicial center when completed later this year.
Typically, he has been told, the workload increases in the court system when a community adds a judge position.
He said the county commissioners are informed on the situation and the community as a whole should also be aware of the possibility.
