Today is a big day for LaVergne… it’s May 21st and the first day candidates can pick up their paperwork from the Rutherford County Election Commission to run for office. Seats to be elected in November: Mayor, Alderman (Vice Mayor Gann’s position), and Alderman (Sherry Green’s position). I’ve heard of about three, maybe four, people who may or may not be running for mayor (how vague is that?). I’ve heard at least two names of people who will run for an Alderman position.
Speaking of Alderman… my question… why is it the “Board of Aldermen”? Why not “City Council”? And why do women have to be called Alderman and not Alderwoman?
