Write-in candidates create race for DeKalb city clerk
DeKALB – A DeKalb city clerk who resigned under controversy is running for the same position as a write-in candidate in the April 9 election.
In February 2012, Steve Kapitan resigned from the position he was elected to in 2009 after failing to comply with the state’s Open Meetings Act.
The controversy around Kapitan’s exit led to the DeKalb City Council reducing the clerk’s salary to $5,000 a year after DeKalb voters defeating a referendum to make the elected office an appointed position. Meanwhile, a deputy clerk will become a full-time position with benefits and likely will be assigned to handle much of the clerk’s duties that are not prescribed by law.
