Red Bank Mayor Glasscock Running Again: 5 Eye Top East Ridge Post

Red Bank's Jones And Pierce, East Ridge's Card, Sewell Have Opposition

Friday, August 13, 2010

Red Bank Mayor Joe Glasscock, in the midst of a spate of controversies and lawsuits, has picked up papers to seek re-election.

And five candidates may seek the mayor's post in East Ridge, that is itself beset with conflict and budget woes.

Robert "Bob" Johnson, a former East Ridge mayor, has picked up papers for the race. Don Huskey, another former mayor, has qualified. Businessman Robert Stahl has also picked up papers. Current Council member Brent Lambert and Robert Frye qualified earlier.

Mayor Glasscock would be going for an at-large seat. He picked up papers four days after Sheryl Campbell got papers for the same seat. John Roberts got in that race earlier.

Edward LeCompte and incumbent Greg Jones are candidates for Red Bank District 3.

Robert Perry, David R. Smith and incumbent Floy Pierce are Red Bank District 1 contenders. Jack D. Smith has picked up papers.

Mr. Jones and Ms. Pierce supported the recent ouster of Police Chief Larry Sneed by City Manager Chris Dorsey, while Mayor Glasscock said it was a mistake. The mayor has asked for a TBI investigation.

A Red Bank mayor and vice mayor are elected from among the commissioners at the first commission meeting after the general election.

There are now six candidates for East Ridge City Council, including Vice Mayor Tom Card and Councilman Larry Sewell. Also qualifying were Jim Bethune, Bill Breneman, Marc Gravitt and Justin Kirk. Christopher Smith picked up papers in May, but has not returned them.

Signal Mountain candidates now include Susan Robertson, Bill Wallace, Frank Preston and Jeremy Rardin. Jason Bowling and Jeffrey Wishmyer have picked up papers.

Four candidates have qualified for the Soddy Daisy Commission race - Janice Cagle, David Skiles, Bobby Privett and Richard "Rick" Nunley. Picking up papers were Melvin Chastain, Jackie Penney and Mark Bivens.
