Genesee County controller terminated

Posted: Updated:
GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A high-ranking public official has been given the boot, as the Genesee County controller, George Martini, was fired from his post by the Board of Commissioners.

Martini was fired Wednesday, but it's still unclear exactly why.

This comes after he told commissioners that he was involved in a federal criminal investigation and was told he wouldn't be prosecuted if he quit his job.

Martini is the county's top financial officer and allegedly has repeated run-ins with several elected officials.

There is no word as to whom will take over for Martini.
