Street Sworn in Before Overflow Crowd

Judge Stacy Street was sworn in as First Judicial District Criminal Court judge yesterday in Elizabethton by fellow Criminal Court Judge Robert Cupp. Before a crowd of well wishers, Street thanked many people, and reflected that he is now sitting on a bench that has been occupied by only three men in the past 40 years: Arden Hill, Cupp and Lynn Brown, who he succeeds. He said all three had a drive “to be fair and to do the right thing” and that his dream is that “When my time is up that you can say the same thing about me.” See photos in the Johnson City Press and Elizabethton Star.
