Last week it was reported that Cache County Recorder Michael Gleed retired from his job in the year 2000 after he’d worked in the office for 30 years. But Gleed this week says he did not actually retire until the end of the year 2006. After that, his job was terminated, but it was reinstated after he ran for election and won.Four years later, he is seeking another term and this time he’s being challenged by fellow Republican Stan Palmer.Gleed says a lot of people don’t realize that elected officials do not receive sick leave or personal leave although the county does provide them with health benefits. Although the departments are independent, he says they do work together.”The software that I’m using for al lthe work that I do is the same software that the other departments in the county are using, so i’m dependent on the IT department, I’m dependent on the budget,” Gleed said. “I’m dependent on the people that they hire to do the things that I need.”The Gleed/Palmer race is one of two local contests to be decided in the June 22 Republican primary. The other is between incumbent House District 5 Rep. Curt Webb and Chuck Bateman.
