Metro Clerk Resigns to Join AOC

Metro Clerk Ana Escobar is resigning effective Nov. 15 to become deputy director of the Tennessee Administrative Office of the Courts. Escobar, who was the first Hispanic woman to lead a Metro department, said she couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with Bill Young and help support the work of more than 180 judges. “I am very sad to leave the mayor and the council,” Escobar said in a phone interview with the Tennessean Friday. “But this is going to be a big challenge.”
