‘Sidekick’ remark irks commissioner

Roane County Property Assessor David Morgan got an earful when he appeared before the budget committee on April 28.

Morgan has been critical of two members of the committee – County Executive Ron Woody and Commissioner Ron Berry – for traveling to Nashville on Feb. 26 for the State Board of Equalization meeting.

“I just want to clear the record,” Berry told Morgan. “If you go back to Nashville, I’ll be back in Nashville.”

Morgan was under fire in Nashville for his handling of the 2015 Roane County reappraisal.
