Chancellor rules a new election must be held in LSSD race

Chancellor C.K. Smith rules some voters were left out

The Wilson Post

A new election will be held Nov. 6 between two candidates for the Lebanon Special School District Board of Education race that appeared on the Aug. 2 ballot, after a court ruling Friday that said some voters were not given the opportunity to vote in that race.

Chancellor C.K. Smith ruled mistakes, omissions or irregularities caused the outcome of the LSSD school board race between Steve Jones and Johnie Payton, to be unclear. When the Wilson County Election Commission certified results on Aug. 14, Jones received 1,467 votes to Paytons 1,468.

Jones challenged the election in Chancery Court, claiming several voters didnt get the chance to cast their vote in the LSSD race. Smith agreed with that claim and ruled the Aug. 2 results be set aside and a new election be placed on the Nov. 6 ballot by the election commission.

County Budget Committee looks to other committees for cuts

The Wilson Post

Wilson County Commission Budget Committee will charge the respective committees with reviewing the 2012-2013 budget and cutting waste from departments in order to balance the budget approved in August and took no action to restore funding to the Convention & Visitors Bureau.

There will be some departments that can cut and others that cant cut anything, said District 23 Commissioner and Budget Committee Chairman Bernie Ash.

Ash proposed sending the budget approved in the Aug. 27 commission meeting to the commissions committees to review with department heads and find places to cut from those departmental budgets.

The committee unanimously agreed and said the respective committees must review budgets line-by-line and find the cuts that would reduce the budget but not sacrifice services.

This is time to do your job, Ash said, referring to various committees.

District 15 Commissioner Mike Justice said now was not the time for committees to rubber stamp budgets. Finance Director Aaron Maynard said the General Fund has expenditures that exceed revenues in the amount of $837,470.
