Charles Holiway has a lot of duties for the upcoming election.
Investigating the residency of candidates isn’t one of them, however.
“That’s not our responsibility,” said Holiway, who serves as Roane County’s administrator of elections.
“It’s the candidate’s responsibility to say that they meet all the qualifications or requirements, such as age, residency, and all that.”
Mike Pemberton, a candidate for 9th Judicial District circuit court judge, said he meets residency requirement.
