(SANILAC COUNTY) -- Sanilac County Clerk Linda Kozfkay (ko-zef-ka) is retiring after 23 years in the position. Kozfkay submitted her letter of resignation to Circuit Court Judge Donald Teeple last Friday. She began her career in Sanilac County as Chief Deputy County Clerk for Delene Schultheiss in 1981 before being appointed to the position of County Clerk in December of 1990.
