Gallatin City Recorder and Judge Connie Kittrell likely will not face additional disciplinary action when the Gallatin City Council meets next week, the Tennessean reports. Kittrell was publicly reprimanded Dec. 19 by the Tennessee Board of Judicial Conduct for her role in having an employee dismiss her daughter’s traffic citation in 2012. “From my standpoint as ethics officer, I see no need to pursue the matter any further,” said city attorney and ethics officer Joe Thompson in an email Tuesday, though he clarified that he “can’t speak for the city council.”
