Challengers Surface in 2 Williamson Judicial Races

Voters may see several candidates for two of Williamson County's judicial seats in the May primary election, The Tennessean reports. On the first day candidates could obtain qualifying petitions, Waller attorney Joseph “Woody” Woodruff picked up a petition to run for Division I Circuit Court, which currently is held by Robbie Beal. On the same day, Franklin city judge Murrey “Tom” Taylor picked up papers to run for the General Sessions Court seat held by Ernie Williams. Williams was named to the post last month after Judge Al Nations retired. He has said he will not stand for election.
