Faulk Fired After Announcing Run For Prosecutor

A Grant County Deputy Prosecutor was fired Monday after announcing over the weekend that he intended to seek the Prosecutor’s job in the May Primary next year.

Rodney Faulk announced plans to seek the Republican nomination for Prosecutor in the Primary in May.  Yesterday, his boss and likely opponent in the Primary…current Prosecutor Jim Luttrull Junior…dismissed Faulk from his job as Deputy Prosecutor.

Luttrull was quoted by the “Chronicle-Tribune” as saying Faulk’s dismissal was due to a personnel issue.  Faulk had worked in the Prosecutor’s office for 22-years.

Luttrull last week announced that he would seek a fifth term as Prosecutor next year.
