Peggy Collier had never ran for public office prior to this year.
However, she was no stranger to what the endeavor entailed. Her late husband, Bobby Collier, was elected to the Roane County Commission five times.
“I knew what to expect and I knew what it was like,” she said.
Collier was appointed to her husband’s District 6 seat on the Commission after he passed away last year.
She will get to serve out his four-year term, thanks to her victory in this month’s election.
