Only one potential candidate joined the list of those considering seeking office in the Nov. 6 municipal elections last week. According to the weekly report from the Dickson County Election Office, Chris Lucas of Farmer Lane in Vanleer picked up a petition to run for one of five seats on the Vanleer Board of Aldermen. Already picking up qualifying papers in the race are Jimmy Bass, David Jackson, Donald Tinsley, Eric Weaver and incumbent Jason Weaver. Nobody has started qualifying yet in the race for mayor. Commissioner Lewis Orcutt is still the only person to start qualifying in the race for mayor of Burns while William “Bill” Allen, James M. “Jim”Anderson and incumbent Chris Holland are the only candidates picking up papers for the four seats on the Burns Board of Commissioners. So far four candidates have obtained petitions to run for the four-year term as mayor of White Bluff, including incumbent Linda Rae Hayes, former Mayor Vance Smith, Thomas “Tommy” Dugan and Ellen Campbell Marsh. Marsh also picked up a petition to run for one of the two seats on the White Bluff Town Council but can only be on the ballot in one race, according to Administrator of Elections Linda Medley. Already picking up papers to run for council in White Bluff are Dan Clark, Darrell Frizsell, Stephanie Murrell and Bobbye Phillips. As of Friday, nobody has picked up a qualifying petition to run for mayor or three commission seats in Slayden. The deadline to get on the ballot for the Nov. 6 municipal elections is noon Aug. 16.
