East Ridge Mayor Brent Lambert has picked up papers to run for County Commission District 8.
The incumbent, Tim Boyd, has already qualified to seek re-election.
Four years ago, it was a three-man race featuring Lambert, Boyd and longtime Commissioner Curtis Adams. Mr. Boyd finished first with Mr. Adams second and Mayor Lambert third.
Mayor Lambert then ran again for East Ridge mayor and won.
Mr. Lambert is the vice president and chief operating officer of the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum.
Meanwhile, County Commission Chairman Randy Fairbanks could face opposition. Steve Coker has picked up papers.
Chip Baker, former school board member, had been the only candidate for District 2 County Commission. However, Elizabeth Baker picked up to run as a Democrat. Incumbent Jim Fields is not running again.
Veteran Commissioner Warren Mackey picked up papers for District 4, but has not yet returned them. Kelvin Scott, former member of the Election Commission, has qualified.
