Election deadline nearing

The race is on for two aldermen positions up for grabs in Farragut’s next election, to be held Tuesday, April 12.

Dot LaMarche, the current vice mayor, and Dr. John Williams, one of two current aldermen for Ward I (the north side) picked up their election petitions before the end of last year.

Ron Honken, a Ward I resident, also picked up a petition. Honken currently serves as a Farragut Municipal Planning commissioner.

The election petitions must be returned by noon, Thursday, Jan. 20, for someone to qualify to run in the election. The final day for a candidate to withdraw is a week later, Jan. 27.

This upcoming election also will hold a spot in history as the last Farragut election to be held in April.

The next Farragut election won’t be held until August 2014, as a result of Farragut’s decision to align its elections with Knox County’s.

The 2014 election also will be the first election to which the newly enacted term limits apply. Farragut voters approved term limits by a landslide in November. The term limits will apply only to officials elected after 2014, and will limit officials to three terms total, and only two terms in any one office (as a mayor or as an alderman).

Early voting will start March 23 and end April 7.
