Rutherford run for mayor?
He has been exploring the possibility and with recent issues over the department he now manages…Washington County, Tennessee zoning administrator Mike Rutherford is weighing his options for running against Dan Eldridge for the county mayor’s job. Rutherford will be presenting several motions to the commission…among one for discussion is the need for a full-time planning director to be hired and placed under his direct supervision. The commission must also agree on an override vote that Eldridge vetoed on restricting his ability to appoint people to the regional planning commission. This is a move that Rutherford has been publicly in favor of making. Rutherford has remained quiet to the press about whether he will be making a serious bid at running for the county mayor position.
