Shelby County Trustee Bob Patterson has been named Tennessee Trustee of the Year for 1995-96. Patterson recently was presented the award by the Tennessee County Trustees Association. The association singled out Patterson and his office for use of modern technology to increase productivity. The state organization named Pattersons commitment to taxpayer services, strong collection rate, aggressive delinquent collections and sound investment practices as reasons for recognition. Tennessees unemployment rate was 4.8 percent in April, down three-tenths of a percentage point over the month and slightly lower than a year ago, commissioner of employment security Margaret C. Culpepper announced. On a yearly basis, the labor force was up by 2 percent, and with the addition of 54,800 more people employed, employment was up 2.1 percent. The number of people unemployed was up by three-tenths of a percentage point. Tennessees jobless rate remained significantly lower than the national rate of 5.4 percent. In April 1995, the state rate was 4.9 percent, and the national rate was 5.7 percent. "The outlook for nonfarm jobs over the year has been very healthy with an overall 2.8 percent growth or the addition of 70,300 new jobs," Culpepper said. "Tennessee outpaced the nation in job creation. Nonfarm employment grew by only 1.5 percent nationally."
