The Appointment of Cardelle Spangler
In his April 17, 2020 Opinion and Order addressing the Plaintiff’s motion, United States Magistrate Judge Sidney I. Schenkier appointed Cardelle Spangler as County Clerk Compliance Administrator (“CCCA”). The Court directed the CCCA and her staff to: (1) Work with the County Clerk (and attorneys for the Plaintiffs) to develop a list of Shakman exempt positions to be approved by the court; (2) Review the County Clerk’s personnel policy, monitor its application, identify problems, and recommend revisions to address those problems; (3) Recommend policies to govern the solicitation and reporting of political donations or support; (4) Review the incorporation of the Recorder of Deeds into the County Clerk to determine, among other things, whether political considerations are improperly used in deciding which Recorder’s Office non-exempt employees are retained by the County Clerk; and (5) Make recommendations as to how to remedy any violations of the Consent Orders the CCCA may find while conducting her duties.
