November Petition Update

That didn't take long. With Friday the first day to pick up qualifying petitions for the November election, several candidates have already picked up petitions. Some even returned theirs and qualified on the same day.

Looks like all the incumbent Lenoir City officials are planning to seek re-election and at least one challenger for a seat on the council has picked up a petition. Ms. Mont Ross is the first challenger to pick up a petition to run for city council.

No one from Greenback or Philadelphia picked up petitions.

Candidates have till mid August to qualify for any of the November elections.

I'll keep you posted.
