§

258. Removal of civil officers

The governor may

remove any civil officer whose appointment devolves upon the governor in the

first instance, whether appointed by him or any of his predecessors, with or

without the advice and consent of the senate, and appoint a suitable person to

succeed such official, subject to removal in his discretion, who shall be sworn

and give the bond, if any, required by law. Such person, unless sooner removed,

shall perform the duties and be entitled to the pay of the person whom he

succeeds, until March 1 of the next biennial year and until his successor is

appointed and has qualified.
