The Dickson County Election Commission re-elected Jack Garton as it chairman and voted Allen C. Johnson to be its new secretary during a brief organizational meeting Thursday. The state election commission appointed Garton to his first full term last month after he was named last June to replace Linda Chambers, who resigned. The commission also re-appointed Melba Isom, who has served on the election commission since March 2010. Johnson was appointed to his first term on the commission last month along with Kory Harvey and Tim White. The Republican Party holds three of the five election commission seats due to its majority in the General Assembly. Republican members are Garton, Harvey and White, all residents of Burns, and Democratic members are Isom and Johnson, both residents of White Bluff. Garton is an attorney with White, Regen and Garton in Dickson and is a former mayor of Burns. Harvey is a CPA with a Nashville healthcare company and co-organizer of the Dickson County Tea Party. White is a principal broker with Benefits Inc. in Dickson and former Burns commissioner. Isom is a clinical trials researcher at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Retired from the US Air Force, Johnson is in the process of closing his Charlotte law practice and is a former White Bluff councilman. The Dickson County Election Commission’s next scheduled meeting is 5:30 pm May 21. The Dickson County Commission might discuss Monday night the possible relocation of the election office from the Courthouse Square to the former sheriff’s office training building across from the former Charlotte Elementary School.
