Richard Bud Armstrong to Run for Law Director?

Word traveling through political circles is that former Eighth District County Commissioner Richard "Bud" Armstrong is testing the waters for a possible candidacy for Knox County Law Director next year. Armstrong was a candidate for County Commission at Large in 2010, so he has the experience of running countywide. With the economy, raising campaign contributions will be his biggest obstacle. With an Armstrong -vs- Jarrett match-up, who will the Knoxville Bar Association and the local Republican party establishment support. As for the Ray Jenkins/Phyllis Severance they are busy recruiting Republicans to challenge Republicans.

Jarrett has made numerous faulty rulings. Republican or not, he is a poor Law Director. Take a look at some of his very bad opinions. Take for example, Jarrett claims the super majority is 7 in County Commission. It isn't. It is 8.

Mayor Burchett needs this straightened out before the budget vote. Do your homework Brian. Jarrett isn't doing a good job. Call Jarrett and ask him. Ask him how 7.2 becomes 7. You cannot have a fractional human being. It has to be 8. Jarrett isn't doing his job.
