November 30, 2011 - Mayor-elect Madeline Rogero appointed Knoxville attorney Charles W. Swanson to the key position of city law director.

Swanson, a partner with Sheppeard Swanson & Mynatt law firm, has served for more than 26 years as special counsel to Knoxville City Council. Swanson also served as assistant city attorney from 1982 to 1984 and as special judge and referee of Knox County Juvenile Court from 1979 to 1982.
