In an opinion piece in the Jackson Sun, attorney Bradford D. Box urges voters to support Amendment 2 in the Nov. 4 election and explains why the amendment is needed. "Our appellate judges must be accountable to the people they serve, and Amendment 2 gives Tennesseans a strong voice in every step of the process: we elect the governor, we elect the legislature and we vote for the judges in retention elections." Amendment 2, he writes, "strikes the proper balance between maintaining accountability to the people and continuing to ensure that we have the qualified, fair and impartial judiciary Tennesseans want and deserve."
