So far from this site, we have heard from Chris Farmer that he intends to run for Alderman via a comment,
Let me start off by introducing myself I am Chris Farmer, I am a Paramedic for Rutherford County Ems and I am work at the Lavergne station and also live in Lavergne. I have been a working on the ambulance for 18 years. I moved to Lavergne from Arkanasas 5 years ago this November. Arkansas was where I was born and raised, but since I moved to Lavergne this has turned into HOME for me and my family. We love this town and the friends we have made here are wonderful and will not move anywhere else. I am Assistant Chief of Box 100 and my wife and 16 year old son are also members of Box 100. Now with all that being said I am going to answer the question of who is running for alderman. ME. It is not official as we all know the paperwork can not be picked up until May 21. I want anyone who has questions or concerns to feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will answer any questions I can to the best off my knowledge. I truly do look forward to serving the people of Lavergne if I get elected. As soon as it is Official that my name is on the ballot I will post my phone number on here so you can call me with your questions or concerns. I would be happy to meet anyone who does not know me or wants to sit down and talk just shoot me an email and I will respond and we can get together and discuss any concerns. I hope to hear from you and I will be posting comments on here also. Thank you for taking time to read this lengthy post, but I felt that I should at least let everyone know who I was and that I was running and not try and hide behind an anonymous post as some others appear to be doing.
Senna Mosley also indicated she’s running for mayor via a comment when Sherry asked if Senna was ready to step up to the plate,
YOU BET!!!!!!!!! If yall are willing to give me a chance I am willing.
And I just confirmed this on the phone with her that Senna Mosley is indeed running for mayor. I’ll leave this post open to comments if anyone wants to add anything.
Candidates may say they are running, but legally cannot accept donations or set up any accounts for campaigning.
Congratulations to Chris and Senna for unofficially announcing and THANK YOU for letting us know here at This is LaVergne first!
