I'm hearing lots of rumors from two or three different sources that a big announcement and perhaps even a job change in Hamblen County Government might be coming---maybe within the next month or more.
It could all change in the twinkle of an eye, but I'm hearing that an elected official just might have decided that the heat is too hot here. While he's been drawing a handsome salary from Hamblen County, he has apparently been out job hunting elsewhere.
If everything works out-- and there are probably still some details and timing to work out--you can bet that the move will be quick.
Of course, there will be an announcement that a "wonderful opportunity" has suddenly come available.
Of course, he'll say that he has been presented with a "real challenge."
Of course, he'll say that he hates to leave. Of course, he'll add that he just can't pass this up.
The departing statement will make it sound like he's had a tough time making a decision when really he's been working to get another job for a long time.
