Roane County Property Assessor Teresa Kirkham produced an audio recording on Friday of a conversation she said she had with J.T. Woods.
Kirkham said the recording is proof that she fired Woods.
“This backs it up,” she said.
Woods is one of four people running against Kirkham in the August election. He worked in the property assessor’s office from Sept. 21, 2008, to Nov. 15, 2010.
