State Senator Bill Ketron has announced he'll seek the County Mayor's office next year. Ketron says there are two main reasons he's decided to seek the office...

Ketron ran unsuccessfully in 1990 and 1998 for the job, which was then known as County Executive.

While his decision to not seek re-election to the state Senate brought mixed emotions, Ketron says it seemed like the right time to run for local office...

Ketron says at age 64, he's got a lot of energy to give to the community as County Mayor...

Ketron will return to Nashville for one more session in January as he seeks the county mayor's position.

News that Ketron would seek the County Mayor's office created a domino effect. After his announcement, State Representative Dawn White threw her hat in the ring for his senate seat. So did County Mayor Ernest Burgess. And another name has emerged as former Congressional candidate Grant Starrett is speculated to be interested.

Voters will head to the polls for the county primary May 1st of 2018 with the County General Election August 2nd of 2018.
