A radical change taking party politics out of Clay County government has been sidetracked on its path to voters in November.
Courts have been asked to intervene and declare the measure as unconstitutional.
The bipartisan panel that designed the change voters would decide drew wrath of the elected, 3-member County Commission.
To Commissioner Luann Ridgeway it would be a costly experiment. That puts her at odds with a charter committee leader Craig Porter, and both are Republicans.
