On Wednesday, there were no petitions requested by anyone to run in the August general election.

However, Campbell School Board Chairman and incumbent Steve Morgan was most recently among a handful of newcomers to request a petition to begin the process to run for office in the county’s general election come Aug. 1.

This week, Morgan and Ryne Cummins picked up petitions to run for the 5th district school board post. The third district field for school board continues to grow. Jessica Childress and Jason Rutherford, who picked up petitions last week, are joined in that field by Brandon Johnson and Jacob Perkins.

August (incumbent)

The county will elect a road superintendent (Ron Dilbeck), property assessor (Brandon Partin) and five school board members. School board seats to be elected are District 1 (Lisa Fields), District 2 (Brent Lester), District 3 (Johnny Byrge), District 4 (Josh James) and District 5 (Steve Morgan). All these incumbents were unopposed in the last election, 2020.

Dilbeck, Partin, Fields, Lester and James picked up petitions last week to run in the late summer general election. Dilbeck, road superintendent and Partin, property assessor, are incumbents while school board incumbents are Fields (D-1), Lester (D-2) and James (D-4).

Marvin Rutherford and Bryan St. John plan to challenge incumbent Brent Lester for the school board seat in District 2.

State Rep. Dennis Powers picked up a petition to get his name on the August ballot which will be the state’s primary election.

Those wishing to run for public office in the August election may pick up petitions through Thu., April 4, 2024. Petitions must be turned in by noon on Thu., April 4, 2024.

The state districts will elect candidates in August, the primary for November’s general election; District 36 State Representative (Dennis Powers) and District 12 State Senate (Ken Yager).

November (incumbent)

The City of La Follette and the Town of Caryville have seven combined posts to be filled. Caryville will elect a mayor (Bobby Stooksbury) and three aldermen; Ward 1 (Patrick Pebley), Ward 2 (Eric Jones) and Ward 3 (Lloyd Lawson). Voters in the City of La Follette will elect a mayor (Cliff Jennings) and two council members (Phillip Farmer and Wayne Kitts).

Those wishing to run for public office in the November election may begin picking up petitions starting Friday, May 17, 2024.
