A Knox County judge has ruled against a potential state House candidate's candidacy:
"Shelley Breeding is not a qualified candidate, and therefore is not eligible to run for the state House of Representatives, District 89, which is solely in Knox County," Chancellor W. Frank Brown III of Chattanooga concluded in a decision filed today.
Breeding's petition to run in the Democrat primary was questioned when a Knox County Election Commission worker discovered that a KGIS map shows part of her residential property, including her house, lies in Anderson County. Her driveway and mailbox are in Knox County.
"Thus, Ms. Breeding would have to show that she was a resident of Knox County," Brown wrote. "It is her duty to show she is qualified. She has failed to prove such."
