Haslam Appoints Gobble To Tennessee Board Of Parole

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Governor Bill Haslam on Wednesday appointed Tim Gobble of Cleveland to the state Board of Parole, filling the remainder of the term left vacant by the resignation of Charles Taylor.

Mr. Gobble’s appointment becomes effective next Tuesday, and the term expires Dec. 31, 2015.

“Tim has demonstrated his commitment and responsibility throughout an extensive career in public service, and we are fortunate to have him on the Board of Parole,” Governor Haslam said. “I am grateful for his willingness to serve in this important capacity.”

Mr. Gobble has been interim deputy chief in the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office since May, returning after serving as deputy chief in 2010-2011. He served as city manager of East Ridge from April 2011-February 2013. Mr. Gobble was the sheriff of Bradley County from 2006-2010.

He served as director of the Cleveland/Bradley County Emergency Management Agency from 2004-2006 and was a special agent and supervisor in the United States Secret Service from 1989-2004, serving in Nashville, Houston, Washington D.C. and Chattanooga. He was a police officer in Cleveland from 1988-1989.

“I am honored to be appointed to this position by Governor Haslam, for whom I have great admiration and respect,” Mr. Gobble said. “I look forward to serving and working with Chairman Montgomery, other Parole Board members, Parole Board staff and relevant stakeholders in the effective operation of the criminal justice system.”

Governor Haslam named Richard Montgomery chairman of the Board of Parole on July 1.

Mr. Gobble received a bachelor’s degree in government and public administration from David Lipscomb College, now Lipscomb University, in 1986. He and his wife, Christie, have been married 25 years and have two daughters and one son.

Roy Exum: School Board Can’t Wait

It took the Hamilton County School board nine months before the group hired a search firm to find a new superintendent. But you mark my words – the Department of Education will undoubtedly implode if our leaders wait another nine months simply hoping for some type of mystical salvation.
