Task force on judicial districts hear call to leave districts untouched

Leave our district alone.

The state’s Advisory Task Force on Composition of Judicial Districts heard that a lot on Monday.

“We ask that you leave the Third (Judicial District) just like it is,” Third Judicial District Chancellor Douglas T. Jenkins said.

That was a common theme among the people who addressed the task force during its Eastern Division public hearing at Roane State Community College.
