After serving as the Scott County Attorney in Davenport for 29 years, Bill Davis is resigning. The State Supreme Court suspended Davis’ law license last month for not providing information about estate work done for some clients in a timely manner. Davis says he’s learned getting his license back would take more time than he first thought so he’s telling the county board of supervisors he’s moving on.
Board chairman Jim Hancock says he’s sorry to see Davis go. He says "Bill’s been a friend of mine for 30 years. A great ally, a great County Attorney, a man of great experience and has done an absolutely great job for the residents of Scott County." Hancock says the board will appoint First Assistant County Attorney Mike Walton to the top job next week.
