A new day dawns
Incumbents out in Farragut election


Mayor Eddy Ford and Alderman for Ward I Tom Rosseel both were voted out of office in Farragut's April 7 election, for which 2,387 voters turned out.

Ford received 763 votes, 32.25 percent of the total. Ralph McGill received 1,603 votes, 67.75 percent of the total for a landslide victory. McGill's margin of victory was about 35 percent.

Homebuilder Bob Markli received 682 votes, 51.55 percent of the total, while Rosseel received 641 votes, 48.45 percent of the total for an approximate 3 percent margin of victory.

Jeff Elliott, who ran unopposed for Alderman Ward II in former Vice Mayor J. Michael Haynes' seat, received 856 votes.

According to Knox County Election Commission chair Greg Mackay, these results will remain unofficial until Commission verifies them throughout the next two weeks.

The newly-elected mayor and aldermen will be sworn in at the April 23 meeting of the Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen at which time a newly-appointed vice mayor should be elected by the Board to fill the vacancy left by outgoing Vice Mayor J. Michael Haynes, who did not seek re-election this cycle.
