I am amazed that your publication chose to endorse David Smith for Juvenile Court Clerk the day before the Election. The of Electoral Commission’s decision to delay the elections for two weeks is one of the few positive results of the storm and flooding Nashville has experienced in the past week. It gives the voters of Nashville an opportunity to consider The City Paper’s endorsement of David Smith for the elected position of Juvenile Court Clerk. Particularly in the context of the coverage The City Paper and other “news” organizations have given to the several candidates for Davidson County Juvenile Court Clerk. This coverage leads one to asking why and how The City Paper could endorse David Smith for the elected position Juvenile Court Clerk? The supposed credentials David would bring to the office of Juvenile Court Clerk are his service as a Court Officer. What is a Court Officer and how does one become a Court Officer. The Court Officers are appointed by an elected official, a judge. The individuals and organization providing financial and material support for the elected official campaign expect and receive consideration when the elected official assumes office. This “consideration” in Tennessee and Nashville Courts includes responding to suggested individuals for positions of Court Officer in the courtroom of the elected judge’s courtroom. Without reviewing the campaign contributions for the judges for whom David has served as a Court Officer I would be hesitant to say from where the suggestion that David be “considered” came from. Are the voters of Davidson County now being asked by the source of David Smith previous recommendation that David, a political appointee, now be elevated to an Elected Official? Has this same source a financial interest in the City Paper? Though I am loathed at the thought Vic Lineweaver might be returned to office, but he defiantly has a better resume than David Smith. It is be premature to suggest that David Smith would less of same, but it is hard to imagine any else.
