Four Candidates Now Running For State Rep

There are now at least four candidates in the running for state representative from Cookeville -- although the only contested race so far may be in the Republican primary. Both Bill Cody and current Cookeville city council member Ricky Shelton have now picked up papers to run as Republicans for the 42nd District House seat in the Tennessee General Assembly. Independent candidate Jeffrey Judd has also filed papers to run for the seat, and incumbent Democrat Henry Fincher is running for re-election. The primary for that race will be in August, with the General Election to be held in November. Candidates for state representative have until April 1st at noon to file qualifying papers.
