Why was the Abbeville County tax assessor fired?
Scant details are available for the Jan. 2 dismissal of then-Abbeville County Tax Assessor Bobby Gladden.
"As you know, this is a personnel issue, so I can't really comment a great deal," Abbeville County Director Bruce Cooley said.
Cooley said Gladden was fired but — citing county policy — could not comment on why.
Gladden, when contacted by the Index-Journal, likewise declined to talk about his termination. He served about seven years as tax assessor.
