Roane County Property Assessor Teresa Kirkham could face some competition if she seeks re-election in 2012.
Cheryl Laxton, a local real estate agent, has filed a political treasurer statement with the Roane County Elections Office.
Sheila Youngblood Brady is listed as Laxton’s treasurer.
Administrator of Elections Charles Holiway said the statement allows Laxton to raise money for the property assessor race, which will be on the August 2012 ballot.
Candidates won’t be able to file petitions to run until January, Holiway said.
