Knox Panel Interviews Trustee Applicants

The Knox County Commission interviewed 12 applicants for the county trustee position on Monday, Knoxnews reports. During the public session, commissioners made it clear they want the new trustee to run the office more openly than it has been. Each of the applicants supported opening up financial records and many spoke about increasing morale in the office following the arrest and resignation of former trustee John J. Duncan. The commissioners announced they would review resumes over the next week and vote on candidates next Monday.
