|City Elections Set For May 7th|
The applications have been filed with the Marshall County Election Commission and 10 local men have put their hats into the race for four city positions.
When Mayor Barbara Woods decided not to run again for Mayor of Lewisburg the first to announce his intent to run for the position and to file the proper papers was retired engineer Jim Bingham.
The second applicant was Mike Farrar. Mr. Farrar is the owner and operator of Farrar Bail Bondsmen. Although there was some question of his residency, Mr. Farrar has proved that he indeed resides above his business located on the square.
The last applicant to enter the race for City Mayor is Bill Williams. Williams has been a resident of Lewisburg for 17 years and feels his 40 years of sales and sales management experience will help him bring back jobs to Lewisburg.
Three men have entered the race for Lewisburg City Councilman, Ward 2 currently held by Hershal Davis. These men are Charles W. “Artie” Allen, Larry E. Jones, and Jeff Taylor. Taylor is currently serving as a County Commissioner.
Two candidates will square off in each of the Ward 3 and Ward 4 races. Ty Dalton will be running against Odie Whitehead, Jr. and Lewis Trigg Cathey will be running against incumbent Ronald S. McRady.
The City Elections will be held on Tuesday, May 7th.
