Tipton appears on WBIR's 10 News at Five
Posted on December 09, 2013
Hanson R. Tipton appeared on WBIR’s 10 News at Five on December 4, 2013 to discuss the Knoxville Bar Association’s upcoming “Get to
Know Your Judicial Candidates” website, a public service of the KBA to provide
information about each of the candidates running in Knox County judicial
elections in 2014. The project originated in the KBA Judicial Committee,
of which Mr. Tipton is a co-chairman. The KBA plans to “go live” with the
site, which will be linked from the main KBA site (www.knoxbar.org), in early 2014 after all of
the nominating petitions for each election are in.
The site will include resources from the League of Women Voters and details on the election process from the Knox County Election Commission so that voters will know what to look for in a judicial candidate. The primary focus, however, will be biographical information about the individual candidates and information about each court. This information, delivered in a straightforward and easy-to-understand format, will provide a convenient way for voters in Knox County to get non-partisan information about candidates running for judge so they can make informed decisions at the ballot box.
