Aldermen race off to slow start


As of Dec. 6, only one candidate has turned in his form to run in the April 3 Farragut Board of Mayor and Alderman election.

According to Knox County Election Commission officials, Ron Rochelle has filed the paperwork to run for the Ward I position currently held by Joel Garber.

Mary Dorothy “Dot” LaMarche and Bob Edlund have picked up petitions to run, as has John Williams. LaMarche is seeking re-election for the Ward II position.

Rochelle said he ran against Mike Haynes a couple of years ago when he lived on the south side of town. Since that time, he has moved to a home in the northern part of the community.

“Presently I’m on the town of Farragut Visual Resources Review Board,” he said.

Edlund said his experience at ORNL as well as his time on the FMPC have given him the background and skills he would need to be alderman for Ward I.

Garber has no plans to seek re-election. Garber’s seat on the Farragut Municipal Planning Commission would also be open after the April 3 election.

Knox County Administrator of Elections Greg Mackay said deadline for petitions is noon, Thursday, Jan. 18, with a withdrawal deadline of noon,

Jan. 25.
