Straw Poll Reveals Strong Support for Tim Burchett in Mayor's Race

A quick, unscientific snapshot of the county mayor’s race:

At a civic club meeting last week, the speaker asked members how many of them had made up their minds already about whom to vote for in this year’s county mayor’s race. About two-thirds of the 30-odd members raised a hand.

The question was then asked, for whom would you vote? All the people who had made up their mind raised a hand for state Sen. Tim Burchett. They were then asked how many planned to vote for former Sheriff Tim Hutchison. No hands were raised. (Lewis Cosby, an independent candidate, got one vote.)
