Jeff Wicks has served us well as one of two General Sessions Court judges. He has a solid record and the background to serve us just as effectively as criminal court judge replacing Eugene Eblen who is stepping down.

As mentioned previously, Eblen's retirement sets off a musical chair reshuffling as lower court judges want to move up to higher courts. This is as it should be, since experience gained in one court prepares for the next. If Wicks is appointed we will then have an opening at the General Sessions level that will have to be filled. That will be interesting to watch and is the position that will affect the most people in Roane County.
