The Knoxville Bar Association yesterday released the results of its member survey of candidates in contested judicial races. The survey asked each member to assess whether the candidates have demonstrated the knowledge, skill, experience, training, education, professional ethics, and temperament to fulfill the duties of the offices to which they aspire. In the race for Knox County public defender, lawyers recommended Eric Lutton over Sherif Guindi. In the race for Knox County law director, lawyers recommended David Buuck over Jackson Fenner. The KBA says the survey is designed to provide a measure of guidance to voters who might otherwise be unfamiliar with candidates.
