Circuit clerk candidates slug it out

Circuit court clerk candidate Sarah Stewart didn’t get a chance to respond at a forum in which opponent Marty Miles took a shot at her.

“Ms. Stewart, I’d be crazy not to say it, she’s probably walked in that office about two or three times in her life,” Miles said during his closing comments at Tuesday’s candidate forum in Oak Ridge.

Stewart gave her closing before Miles and didn’t have a chance to answer the allegation.

She did address it afterward, saying she was at the office several times a week.
