Election Commission OKs Greeneville Election

During a called meeting Monday, the Greene County Election Commission approved the Town of Greeneville's request for a municipal election, to be held on June 3.

The election will include the following offices:

* Greeneville mayor, at large;

* two Greeneville aldermen from the 2nd Ward; and

* an at-large member of the Greeneville Board of Education.

The commission unanimously approved the Town's request.

Chairman Peggy McCamey requested that City Administrator Todd Smith speak to the Election Commission concerning recent proposed changes to the Town Charter in regards to elections, unrelated to the June 3, 2014, Greeneville election.

Smith said that the charter amendment proposals are available for public viewing at Town Hall and online.

He explained that the Greeneville Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved for the 2015 and future elections to be held in conjunction with the county's August elections. Some other changes to the charter, unrelated to elections, are also being proposed.

The election-date change will reduce costs and will only cause a two-month extension to current terms until all officials have been elected in August rather than in June, he said.

The change from June to August elections and extension of terms of current office holders, along with the other proposed changes to the town's state charter, require the approval of the Tennessee General Assembly.

The board has submitted this proposed revision to the town's charter and expects state lawmakers to consider it during the 2014 legislative session that begins in January.

If it is approved by the state legislature and signed by Gov. Bill Haslam, it will need a final reading and approval by the Greeneville Board of Mayor and Aldermen in order to go into effect.

Earlier this month, aldermen voted in favor of a resolution that would extend the current office-holders' terms by two months to match with the change in election dates.

That resolution asks state Rep. David Hawk, R-5th, of Greeneville, and state Sen. Steve Southerland, R-1st, of Morristown, to introduce the term extension for consideration by the state legislature.
