A former Harriman fire chief has indicated his intention to run against incumbent Chris Mason in the upcoming mayoral race.
Both Mason and Wayne Best have taken out qualifying petitions to seek the office. As of Friday, neither man had returned the petitions, according to the Roane County Election Commission’s website.
Both are former members of Harriman City Council, with Mason on the heels of completing his first term as mayor.
All of Roane County’s municipalities will elect new city leaders on June 7.
