Hopson seeking top KCEA seat

Just ran across this, but it's been out there for awhile.

Apparently today is the first day teachers who are members of the Knox County Education Association can vote for a new president.

Now, this probably doesn't sound like a big deal, but it actually is. You see Lauren Hopson, who hasn't taken any bull from any of the school administrators, is challenging incumbent Tanya Coats, who one time actually called some administrators and gave them a heads up on a story we were working on. (A few of us reporters were less than happy to find out about that.)

So, as some people have characterized it to me, it's probably another election that comes down to whether you'll be subservient or ask questions. 

I don't know. Just throwing it out there. I can't vote. From what I understand some 2,000 teachers belong to KCEA. And if this election is like any other in Knox County, it probably means that about 100 of them will vote.

Anyhoo,  the the elections last until Feb. 6.

Betty Bean over at the Shopper has more details about this. I don't want to steal her thunder. You can find her story RIGHT SMACK HERE.
