June 25, 2009 Has the New Administrator of Elections Already Been Determined Before Tomorrow's Public Meeting?

Tomorrow at 3:30 the Hamblen County Election Commission will select a new Administrator of Elections to replace Wanda Neal.

Last week, the paper said that there were four applicants for the $62,000/year post.

It is rumored that one of the four applicants already has the votes and knows that he is going to be appointed tomorrow. See my post listing the four applicants here.

I have also heard that this individual has apparently already resigned his former job in anticipation of his appointment as Administrator of Elections---all this before public deliberation and public discussion by election commissioners and before a single vote has been cast.

Imagine the suspense tomorrow as the paper waits to report the (foregone) results.

Since he has already resigned his other job, this man will be ready to take over right away and start drawing that $5,100+ per month government salary plus health insurance, retirement, etc. as he administers elections in Morristown and Hamblen County.
