Judicial commissioners not approved
Placeholder Image
A motion to appoint three judicial commissioners failed to garner enough votes from the county commission to pass Monday night. Third District Commissioner Jack Barton made a motion, seconded by Fifth District Commissioner Anita Puckett, that the county commission accept the three candidates, current Judicial Commissioner Taft Hendrixson, as well as Tammy Ashburn and James Harvey Barnes at one time, rather than one at a time as some commissioners wanted. The measure carried on a voice vote, with three members voting against it.
