* State Rep. David B. Hawk, of Greeneville, a Republican who represents the 5th District in the Tennessee House of Representatives, has filed for re-election to that position in the Aug. 2 State Republican Primary Election.
Hawk is currently serving his fifth term in the House of Representatives, where he is chairman of the House Conservation & Environment Committee and a member of the House Finance, Ways & Means Committee and the House Calendar & Rules Committee.
* Duncan Cave, of Greeneville, has also filed for election to the 5th District seat in the state House of Representatives in the Aug. 2 State Republican Primary Election.
Cave is a civil and criminal trial attorney who practices law in Greeneville with his two brothers and his father as a member of The Cave Law Firm, PLLC.
He has not previously held political office but was a candidate for Second Ward Greeneville alderman in 2010.
* Greeneville Mayor W.T. Daniels has filed as a candidate for re-election in the Greeneville Municipal Election on June 5.
Mayor Daniels stated recently that he planned to be a candidate although he had not yet formally filed the necessary petition.
A Greeneville businessman involved in property management, Daniels was a longtime Greeneville alderman before being elected mayor in June 2010.
At this time no other candidates have filed to run for mayor.
* Second Ward Alderman Sarah E.T. Webster has filed a petition to run for re-election to that position in the Greeneville Municipal Election.
Webster is a longtime Greeneville alderman who also serves as chairman of the Greeneville-Greene County Regional Solid Waste Planning Board and the Greeneville Historic Zoning Commission.
She also represents the Town of Greeneville on the Greeneville Light and Power System Board of Directors.
Other candidates for the two Second Ward alderman positions at this time are incumbent Alderman Darrell Bryan and Brian Bragdon.
* Phillip Belisario has filed a petition for election as constable in the 5th Constable District in the Aug. 2 Greene County General Election. The position of constable is non-partisan.
The constable position in the 5th District became open in late 2011 when Constable David Foshie moved outside the district.
Subsequently, in February, Belisario was elected by the Greene County Commission to serve in that post until the Aug. 2 General Election.
He is now running for election to the remainder of the unexpired term of former Constable Foshie.
The constable district includes the Tusculum View, Eastview, Highland Roby, Greeneville Middle School, and Greeneville High School and Greene County Courthouse precincts.
At this time there are no other candidates for this office.
