HOWARD COUNTY - A Justice of the Peace in Howard County is out of a job.

Kathryn Wiseman, who held the Precinct 1 Place 2 position, has been forced to resign under state law.

The decision came after a special meeting with County Commissioners.

Officials say that's because she filed too early to run for County Judge next year.

Wiseman says she will continue her campaign against incumbent Mark Barr.

Justice of the Peace Bennie Green will assume Wiseman's duties for the time being.
