How they voted
Washington County’s Quorum Court failed to move to a second reading an ordinance to exempt former Justice of the Peace Sharon Lloyd from the county’s Employee Handbook code barring elected officials from county employment for one year. Voting against it: Democrats Eva Madison, Sue Madison, Ann Harbison and Republicans Joel Maxwell and Lisa Ecke. Voting for it: Bill Ussery, Butch Pond, Tom Lundstrum, Joe Patterson, Harvey Bowman, Robert Dennis, all Republicans, and Democrat Daniel Balls. Roddy Lloyd, a Republican and Lloyd’s husband, and Joseph Kieklak, a Democrat, abstained. The measure needed 10 votes to pass to the second reading.
