Will Knox County Commission Take another Look at the Retiree Representation Issue?

Thursday, 22 March 2018

Law Director Bud Armstrong obviously erred on the Knox County Charter interpretation for retired officers’ representation and he attempted to redeem himself by suggesting the Knox County Sheriff’s Office staff lawyers represent the retired officers.  Surely, Armstrong realizes that KCSO attorneys are entitled to the same pension as these retired officers and it would be a conflict of interest.

We are wholeheartedly disappointed in the actions of the Law Director.  Denying representation has placed a wedge that could prevent adequate representation for all Knox County employees.  This issue should be revisited and it can be if any commissioner who voted against representation brings it back to commission on Monday.
