Jeffrey Eby handily won a write-in campaign to be the new constable in the 1st Constable District, which is the county’s 10th and 12th districts. Eby was named on 185 write-in ballots while Michael Baker received only six write-in votes. Both candidates qualified to run as write-ins after nobody met the deadline to be on the ballot for the four-year term. In the only contested constable race on the actual ballot, incumbent Steve Manley easily won another term in the 2nd Constable District, which is the 6th and 11th county districts. Manley received 521 votes in unofficial results, with Harden Lane getting 240 and Jerry Perella receiving 107. Scotty Harrell won a full four-year term in an uncontested race in the 3rd Constable District with 637 votes while Bob Jackson in the 5th and J.B. Smith in the 6th were re-elected without opposition with 788 and 712 votes, respectively. The 4th Constable District, which is the 8th and 9th county districts, did not have any candidates on the ballot or write-ins and has been added to the Nov. 6 ballot for a special election. In a special election for the 7th District seat on the Dickson County Highway Commission, Austin Potter received 330 votes to serve the two years remaining on the term. After nobody ran in 2010, Potter was appointed to the position by the county commission. The 10th District seat on the highway commission has been added to the Nov. 6 ballot after nobody qualified for the position in 2010 or in yesterday’s election. Starting in 2014, the highway commission will be reduced from 12 to six members.
