Deputy DA steps down
Union County Chief Deputy District Attorney John Schilling has resigned from the position and plans to withdraw from the district attorney race.
Schilling, who worked in the Union County DA’s office as chief deputy since 2007, resigned July 7 for personal reasons.
“I did find it necessary to resign from the DA’s office,” Schilling said. “I’m relocating to Washington State due to some pressing family matters.”
The move will necessitate that he withdraw from the DA race. He was slated to face off against District Attorney Kelsie McDaniel, who was appointed by the governor from her deputy DA position to the office’s top spot earlier this year following Tim Thompson’s retirement.
