Knox County Assessor of Property John R Whitehead is being challenged on March 3, 2020 Early Voting through February 25th #Republican Primary by Tina Marshall.
Marshall in talking about her time at the Assessors Office said she had quit. A review of her personnel file reveals that is NOT correct. Marshall was terminated by former Knox County Assessor of Property Philip Ballard on August 13, 2010 for insubordination. She began employment with Ballard on March 31, 2008. Also in her personnel file, there are documents detailing that during her employment she had been placed on a probationary period on July 1, 2009 by Former Chief Deputy Jim Weaver of the Assessors Office.
After her termination she appealed the unemployment decision and the unemployment appeal tribunal ruled against her, due to facts that are detailed in her personnel file.
