The filing deadline for the Aug. 7 election is at noon Thursday.
As of Monday, only one candidate – Greg Leffew of Rockwood – had qualified to run for Roane County attorney.
That’s surprising to some, given the fact that the position pays $93,775 for what is a part-time job.
“I don’t know why it hasn’t attracted more interest,” Harriman attorney Donice Butler said. “It does pay well.”
Butler lost to Tom McFarland in the 2006 county attorney’s race.
