Employee turnover in the Roane County Property Assessor’s Office has become an issue in this year’s campaign.
“We have had many, many employees come through that office,” said Molly Leggins Hartup. “The turnover rate has been very high.”
Hartup is one of three people challenging incumbent David Morgan for the property assessor’s job. Since Morgan took over on Sept. 1, 2012, there have been roughly 30 employee changes in his office, according to County Payroll Officer Linda Stooksbury.
