TBA President Cindy Wyrick today joined Gov. Bill Haslam and Yes on 2 Honorary Co-Chairs former Gov. Phil Bredesen and former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson for the Yes on 2 Campaign kickoff. The Yes on 2 Campaign is supported by a business coalition that hopes to raise the funds necessary for mass campaign activities, including television commercials urging the adoption of the amendment. “I was very pleased to be present for the launch of the Yes on 2 campaign, as the TBA shares the campaign’s very important goal of passing the Judicial Selection Amendment, or Amendment 2," Wyrick said. "The TBA believes that adoption of the amendment is the best way to ensure stability and consistency in our judicial system and to maintain our fair and impartial courts."  The TBA Board of Governors determined that it should favor adoption of the amendment with the advent of the Governor’s Commission for Judicial Appointments, because it is the best way to further the TBA’s long-standing policy of supporting merit selection for judges and the use of retention elections.
