No Case for Complaint

Based on consultation with the State Comptroller’s office, District Attorney General Jennings Jones says he will not pursue a complaint filed against Cannon County Schools or the county’s Highway Department. A complaint filed by county commissioners Jeannine Floyd and Ronnie Mahaffey alleged financial wrongdoing and improper appointments by the agencies. The complaint was sent to the District Attorney General’s office in Murfreesboro.

General Jones asked the Office of the Comptroller to review the complaint. Jones told WBRY that the Comptroller’s Office has confirmed that proper personnel and the funding for their positions have been accounted for. Jones also said the state’s findings show there was no wrongdoing, and that Cannon County is in compliance with all related regulations.
