Bill Lockett to Challenge Law Director John Owings

Local Knoxville Attorney Bill Lockett will challenge Knox County Law Director John Owings in the Republican Primary in February 2008.

Lockett officially announced on the Hubert Smith Radio Show last Sunday. However this week he filed the paperwork in naming a Treasurer for a possible run.

Lockett was nominated by a couple of County Commissioners in September 2006 and received three votes to replace Law Director Mike Moyers when Moyers became one of Knox County's Chancellor's.

John Owings was selected by a majority of the Commissioner's and has performed the duties of Law Director in an professional manner since his selection. Owings has extensive experience in the Law Director's office.
