Cerro Gordo County auditor quits 4 months on the job

August 10, 2018

MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) — The Cerro Gordo County auditor has resigned just four months after taking office.

Riley Dirksen ran unopposed in an April special election to replace Ken Kline, who quit to take a state post.

Dirksen says his videogame business occupies much of this time, creating a conflict. Dirksen told the Mason City Globe Gazette Thursday that “working 8 to 5 at the courthouse and then trying to do my other work got to be too much.”

His resignation took effect immediately. He’ll be replaced temporarily by the county treasurer, Pat Wright.
