According to a press release submitted by Asbury’s office, her community involvement includes serving on the St. Mary’s of Campbell County board of directors, Caryville City Court judge, Campbell County Planning Commission, Lafollette Housing Authority board member, REACHS board member, Lafollette Medical Foundation board member, Campbell County Agriculture Committee and as an active member of the Jacksboro United Methodist Church.

Jack Cannon is serving as treasurer of Asbury’s election committee. A campaign kick-off event has been scheduled for Jan. 24, 2014, from 6:30 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the Cove Lake State Park Pavilion in Caryville. The public is invited.

Asbury will oppose Andy Tillman in the Aug. 7 general election. Tillman, a Huntsville native, was appointed by Gov. Bill Haslam as the 8th Judicial District’s chancellor last year.
