GOP Chair Jenkins to Challenge Fee Office Proposal

Sources from the City County Building have called with the recent news that Knox County Republican Party Chairman Ray Jenkins has offered his services. Jenkins reportedly has informed the opponents of the fee office proposal that he will defend them in a legal challenge should Knox County Commission approve the fee office proposal. This issue has tied up the time of bloggers and Mike Donila of the Sentinel all week. The vote of Knox County Commission is expected at the Commission meeting on Monday. As I began asking individuals about this rumor many persons simply laughed and said is that supposed to be a deterrent? I would assume this would be a divorce proceeding, determining who gets to keep the office, the belongings and when and how often custody of the employees will take place .

This proposal initiated by Commission Chairman Hammond, Commissioners Briggs and McKenzie is supported by fee officeholders Trustee John Duncan, Circuit Court Clerk Cathy Quist and County Clerk Cathy Quist. The fee officeholders opposed to the proposal are Register of Deeds Sherry Witt, Criminal Court Clerk Joy McCroskey and Clerk and Master Howard Hogan.
