Municipal elections set for Aug. 25

Qualifying for the upcoming municipal elections in Blount County ended last week. While several of the county’s towns only had one candidate to qualify for mayor and council seats, others saw an influx of qualifiers.

Registered voters in Blountsville, Cleveland, Hayden, Oneonta, and Snead will head to the polls Tuesday, Aug. 25, to elect a mayor and council. The residents of County Line, Highland Lake, Nectar, Rosa, and Susan Moore know already who will lead their towns for the next four years. Phone calls and emails to the Town of Rosa were not returned.

The following is a full list of qualifiers. Over the next three weeks, we will profile the candidates from Blountsville, Cleveland, Hayden, Oneonta, and Snead. Those will be shared in The Blount Countian prior to the election. Once those are complete, we will bring you profiles of officials from the remaining municipalities.
