Republican Greg Brooks won the crowded Rutherford County Road Superintendent race with 5,724 votes, beating Joe Frank Jernigan by a mere 495 votes.

Overall, Brooks received 29.18 percent of the votes cast, Jernigan received 26.66 percent, Buddy Gambill Jr. 22.54 percent and Robert Alsup 21.39 percent.

Boner will square off with Democrat Rob Mitchell in August.

The candidate for assessor backed by big bucks from the local builders and developers got trounced. I wonder if the same will happen to one of the two "big spenders" in the Council race.Ron Washington is a shoo in but I think Bratcher is vulnerable.

I welcome the support of all the citizens who believe it's time to have someone who understands the suffering of property owners and is poised and prepared to make a positive difference in the office of assessor. I welcome the support. Call my campaign office anytime 615-900-0829.
