Kim Davis Rowan County Clerk

ROWAN COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ)- Kim Davis says she will quit her job a week early. She lost in her bid for election last month.

Davis was the clerk who went to jail for a few days in 2015, when she refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

Kim Davis says she’s quitting her job a week before her term ends because serving into January will delay her retirement and health benefits.

County Judge-Executive Walter Blevins is doing the same thing.

Davis was the clerk who went to jail for a few days in 2015, when she refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses.



The governor announced Wednesday he would appoint Harry Clark as judge-executive.

Clark will then appoint Elwood Caudill Junior to be county clerk. He’s the man who beat Davis.
