The Scoop 7-28
County executive can't also be mayor
Placeholder Image
In last week's column about the county elections of 2018, I let my imagination wander and talked about the possibility of McMinnville Mayor Jimmy Haley running for county executive.If he should run and win, I wondered if Haley could simultaneously hold both jobs, that being Warren County Executive and McMinnville Mayor. It would be a king-of-all-he-surveys situation.Turns out, this can't happen. Upon further review of that loving document we know as Tennessee Code Annotated, a county executive, also known as a county mayor in some parts, can't hold any other public office for profit.
