County Assistant Attorney Being Fired, Claims Retaliation

The complaint was investigated by Dubuque County’s Human Resources Department. Kirkendall is running for county attorney in the November election and claimed when he was placed on leave that the move was one of retaliation for seeking the seat currently held by C.J. May III, a claim that May has denied.
