Commissioner Tommy Massey has resigned from the Hamblen County Commission. Massey represented the 14th district (Manley School voting precinct).
Massey's resignation letter was turned in several days ago but hasn't been mentioned publicly---probably so certain commissioners could get the replacement vote lined up before news of the vacancy was released by the "news"paper.
[I was elected as 14th district commissioner in 2002 and served until 2006 when I chose not to run for re-election. Click here. Massey ran unopposed in 2006 and was re-elected in a close race against Larry Carter in 2010.]
