Lockett Changes Opinion

As the Commission met on Monday night during the first vote for the appointment for Commissioner Seventh District several nominees received 2 votes. Bill Lockett, Knox County Law Director opined that all the 2 vote nominees must be dropped. Commissioner Mark Harmon and Craig Leuthold raised a point of inquiry that the rules of Commission said that one nominee would drop and a simple re-do vote would have to be conducted.

Bill Lockett reconsidered and Commission Chairman Tank Strickland announced that the Law Director had changed his opinion. How long does the learning curve last?
