Re: “SCEC To Sue County Commission Over Voting Machine Turndown

The Election Commission is paying for a SECOND outside private law firm to force the County to pay millions more for a less secure system. Unlike other TN counties, which have the County Atty represent them for routine matters, SCEC insists on paying outside counsel. Now they're going to pay ANOTHER outside counsel for this suit. Why can't the original outside counsel (John Ryder) do this?

Re: “Super Tuesday: How the Democrats Line Up — Locally and Nationally

Great article. Thank you for your public service of having this kind of information. Voters who have not made up their minds will find it useful.
Cool idea to do the teasers.

Re: “Municipal School Districts Get a Double Whammy

Re: the last comment, the crux of that is actually in a footnote in the AG opinion. Norris Todd makes pretty clear that there can be no "action" toward a muni district until merger is complete. The question is, what is "action" toward that? In a footnote, the opinion says there is no clear TN authority, but it cites some analogous cases from other states. One can agree or disagree with this, of course. But right now, the AG has spoken, and the Election Commission has quite understandably acted accordingly.

Thanks for the great update about the Zippin Pippin. I am glad to hear it is doing well somewhere, if it can't be here.

Re: “Question of Interim County School Board Dominates Special County Commission Meeting

Very clear statement of what's going on. Things are moving so fast I guess we need constant online articles to help explain things.

Re: “In 12 Hours of Interviews, County Commission Picks Some Favorites for a Unified School Board

The 50 "finalists" (really more like 64) are public knowledge. You can get the list by calling the County Commission office at 545-4301.
