Four More For Judge

Four more attorneys have picked up petitions to run for the newly opened general sessions judge's seat in the May primary. Rex Dale, Robert Hinton, Henry Sledge and Kimberly Waterhouse have all picked up petitions to run in the republican primary.

Last week I ran the story, Pay Scale, which reported the salary for the elected positions on the upcoming ballot. At that time I did not include the judge's salary since that position was not on the ballot. But now that it's in play it's fair to include it in the salary report.

As with most of the county elected officials salaries, sessions judge's pay is set by the state. Only an attorney could figure out the factors that go into figuring the salary of judges. But currently the Loudon County General Sessions Judge salary is $138,676.08 per year plus benefits. Not too shabby

Any more takers?
