The applicants are R. Michelle Blaylock-Howser of Christiana, and Adam T. Dodd, Lisa Ann Eischeid, Trevor H. Lynch, Matthew Thomas Moffitt, Darrell L. Scarlett and Charles Gordon Ward, all of Murfreesboro. The commission will interview the applicants at the Rutherford County Courthouse. The meeting will include a public hearing starting at 9 a.m. CDT, during which anyone may express their opinions in opposition to the applicants. The commission is expected to vote immediately following the interviews and forward three names to Gov. Bill Haslam for his consideration.
