Kim Nelson’s tenure as Roane County circuit court clerk could be one term.
This week, Nelson announced plans to run for 9th Judicial District circuit court judge.
“I’m preparing to run, and I have picked up papers to begin this process,” she said.
Nelson was elected circuit court clerk in 2010. She replaced multi-term clerk Angela Randolph, who did not seek re-election that year.
The race for judge will not include an incumbent, either.
