Nina Gregg of Maryville was misquoted in a story on page A-9 of the July 24 edition of Blount Today. Gregg was at the BBQ Rally for Judge Mike Meares and was asked her thoughts on the campaign and on the turnout for the event.
The quote should have read, “People are concerned about integrity and fairness in our courts,” she said.
Regarding turnout for the event, Gregg said she saw people at the BBQ whom she had not seen before at campaign events, which suggested to her that people are interested in the race.
Blount Today apologizes for the error.
