Brewster County Treasurer to Remain in Office

BREWSTER COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

A lawsuit filed against Brewster County Treasurer Ruth Staton has been dropped.

According to the Alpine Avalanche, Brewster County Judge Eleazar Cano filed a lawsuit back in August 2015 against Staton to have her removed from office.

Then, according to the Alpine Avalanche, Cano filed an amended petition a few days later alleging, “incompetency” for failing to “carry out the statutory duties of the office of county treasurer in virtually all respects.”

Then, just last week, Cano filed a “non-suit.”

The “non-suit” essentially means that Staton will remain in office as County Treasurer and we’re told that all the county commissioners approved the action.
