After decades serving the public as a county commissioner, James “Dub” Harmon is no longer an elected official.
Instead of tucking tail over his recent election loss, Harmon is, instead, stepping up.
“That stage of my life is probably through,” the 83-year-old said recently in a Roane County News interview about his failure to get re-elected. “But there are many things for Roane County I can work for.”
Harmon has not been afraid to champion what, to some, have been unpopular causes.
