Anderson County Chancellor to Retire

William E. “Bill” Lantrip, Anderson County’s longtime chancellor, announced last week that he would step down when his current eight-year term ends next year. Lantrip, 69, said he wanted to give sufficient notice to those who may be interested in making a bid for the post, Knoxnews reports. Prior to becoming chancellor in 1989, Lantrip was an assistant city attorney and then city attorney in Oak Ridge for 20 years.
