MIDDLEBURG — Snyder County is again looking to fill the chief public defender position.

Rachael Glascoe was appointed to the $55,000-a-year post in May following the departure of Peter Kay who resigned amid a controversy surrounding a Facebook posting made by his wife, Jennifer Rager-Kay, and his displeasure with what he considered lax security enforcement by county leaders during the health pandemic.

Glascoe, who had worked as an assistant public defender for a year before taking over the helm, is leaving to take a job in another county. Her last day is Dec. 4.

County Board Chairman Joe Kantz said the commissioners have spoken with a couple of attorneys and hope to fill the chief public defender position before Glascoe leaves.

"We've worked on it. There aren't a lot of options," he said.
