Council Candidates Can Now Pick Up Petitions

Today is the first day that candidates for several state and local offices can pick up qualifying papers to run in the August elections. Races will be held for the Cookeville city council, the state house and senate and the U-S Congress, among others. Council members in Cookeville are limited to two four-year terms, so only two of the five incumbents are eligible to run again. Municipal elections will also be held in Algood, Monterey and Baxter. And three of the six seats on the Putnam County school board are up for election.
