A State House of Representatives hopeful appeared before the Tennessee Court of Appeals to give her argument over a residency dispute.
Shelley Breeding wants to run for the newly formed 89th House District that covers Karns and Hardin valley.
She is appealing a Knox County court decision which ruled she is legally a resident of Anderson County and cannot be a Knox County candidate.
A Knoxville Geographic Information System map shows Breeding's house is in Anderson County but her driveway and mailbox are in Knox.
At today's appeal hearing Breeding argued the maps are inaccurate saying Anderson County maps show one thing while Knox County maps show another.
She is registered to vote in Knox County but pays her property taxes to Anderson County.
Still, she says the court's decision should be based on the totality of circumstances
"Residency is not just where my dwelling is located but also my front yard where I play with my dog or with the tree I got from my husband. All of those things are part of my home, part of my residence," says Breeding.
The court agreed to expedite the appeals process because early voting begins in mid-July for the August 2nd primary.
The court will decide by tomorrow on her residency.
If the court rules in her favor, then a judge will have to create a ballot initiative to ensure she's on the ballot.
