1 person on ballot for city clerk in Lenoir City

LENOIR CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- With a single vote, Bobby Johnson Jr. would become the city clerk in Lenoir City.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reported Johnson is the only candidate on the ballot for the post, which also has city recorder and treasurer duties.

Loudon County Election Commissioner Dana Zehner said Johnson is the only qualified candidate on the November ballot.

Zehner said any write-in candidate would have to receive at least 25 votes to qualify as a candidate.

Johnson currently serves as chairman of the Loudon County school board and works full time for the Lenoir City parks and recreation department.
