By Bill Dries

Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich filed her qualifying petition Tuesday, Nov. 22, to run in the March 6 Republican primary for the post she has held since January.

Weirich was appointed the county’s chief prosecutor by Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam after he appointed Bill Gibbons, her predecessor, to be the state commissioner of safety and homeland security.

The 2012 special election is to fill the remaining two years left on Gibbons’ eight-year term of office. Weirich filed the week after state Sen. Jim Kyle announced he would not run in the Democratic primary for District Attorney General after briefly considering it.

Dec. 8 at noon is the deadline for candidates to file for the March 6 countywide primaries and the Aug. 2 county general elections for the three countywide offices on the ballot: Shelby County district attorney general, Shelby Count assessor of property and General Sessions Court clerk.
