Gallagher for County Mayor

Former Blount County for Kerry-Edwards Chairman and community activist, Joe Gallagher, is running for County Mayor!

In a recent email from the Joe Gallagher for County Mayor Campaign, Mr. Gallagher outlines his campaign in the months to come. “It really doesn't matter in local elections whether you are a Democrat or a Republican,” says Gallagher. “What will count next August 3 is which candidate projects a vision for our scenic community that combines our present rural atmosphere with managed quality growth.”

Mr. Gallagher will be hosting a reception on Monday, January 30th from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at the Blount County Library.

“This election cycle we will see candidates from the Democratic Party that will talk about the issues that matter most for this community,” said Maryville College Democrat President Alex Youn. “Joe Gallagher is an excellent candidate for Blount County Mayor. We need more leadership like Mr. Gallagher who care about the future of the county. We fully applaud the Gallagher for County Mayor Campaign for talking about issues rather than partisan politics.”
