Macon County Chronicle

August 7, 2014 Election Results

The two Macon County School Board positions were filled by Jimmy Cook (Districts 1 & 2) and Wayne Marsh (Districts 3 & 4).

In the State Primary, Macon County voters voted along with the bulk of Tennessee residents to elect Bill Haslam (R) and Charles V. ‘Charlie’ Brown (D) to vie for Governor and Lamar Alexander (R) for United States Senate, however, the votes differed for the Democratic U.S. Senate candidate. While Macon County chose Terry Adams, the state vote elected Gordon Ball.

In the US House of Representatives 6th Congressional District, Diane Black (R) will run against Amos Powers (D), and Mae Beavers (R) will serve another term as state senator of the 17th District as there is no democratic contender.

Kelly Keisling (R) will continue to serve the 38th District in the TN House of Representatives as he also has no democratic opponent in the November 4, 2014 election.

Macon County voters elected to retain all supreme court at large, court of appeals and court of criminal appeals positions, as did the majority of Tennessee voters.
