The Camden County Clerk has responded after a federal judge ruled against him in a lawsuit he filed against the county commission. Rowland Todd told KRMS News he felt he was voicing his concerns for the interests of the county residents when he filed the suit.
Todd says now that the suit has been decided and over, he hopes everyone can move forward and get back to doing the work they were elected to do.

STATEMENT FROM CAMDEN COUNTY CLERK ROWLAND TODD:
“To the citizens of Camden County, the federal judge has issued an order which acknowledges concerns I voiced as your clerk and as a citizen but finding that I was not exercising “free speech” as a citizen for the purpose of a first-amendment claim. I consider myself as your servant. I spoke out then, and will do so again, when the interests of our citizens are at stake. I have been humbled and thank the citizens of Camden County for their overwhelming support through all these years.”
