David Norton Resigns As Soddy Daisy Judge

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

David Norton, newly appointed judge in General Sessions Court, has resigned as judge at Soddy Daisy Court.

Judge Norton was named by the County Commission to fill the seat that was held by the late Judge Bob Moon.

He has picked up papers to run for the seat in August.

He wrote this resignation letter:

Dear Mayor Jim Adams:

 

            It is with great regret that I must, at this time, resign my position as City Judge of Soddy Daisy, Tennessee.

The last 27 years have been the best in my life in serving this wonderful community.  As you know, I have now been sworn in as General Sessions Judge for Hamilton County, and for many reasons, including both practical and legal, I feel it is in the best interest of the citizens of Soddy Daisy and the citizens of Hamilton County that I devote my full attention as General Sessions Judge, as I did as City Judge for Soddy Daisy. 

 

            I have enjoyed my relationships immensely with everyone involved at Soddy Daisy over the last 27 years and want to reassure you that nothing other than my legal and ethical obligations are the reasons for my resignation.  I will do whatever is necessary to assist the City in making a seamless transition to selecting a new City Judge. 

 

            I want to thank you and everyone I have worked with over the years for their complete efforts to make my job as comfortable as possible.

 

            With warmest personal regards, I remain

 

                                                                                    Very truly yours, David Norton
