It’s getting just as hot in the Wilson Living office as it is outside. Starting with our coverage of some of the elections taking place in August.
Wide-open races for political offices in 2010 have produced a crop of candidates in Wilson County’s general election. This issue you will get to know the three men running for the office of Wilson County Mayor. We hope you’ll enjoy reading about these three incredible men as they share their vision for the future of our county. We’ll also get reacquainted with Wilson County Court Clerk, Jim Goodall. Jim has held the office of Wilson County Court Clerk since 1990 and will run this year against local businessman, George Snodgrass. Also included in the political section, Wilson Living gives you a rundown of other several other contested local elections. And readers, if you haven’t already, REGISTER TO VOTE! Go to www.wilsonelections.com to print off a voter registration form. The deadline to register to vote in the August 5th general election is July 6th.
Readers will also notice a new face this issue. Local Optometrist, Dr. John Gallaher, trades in his lensometer for a knife and fork as he sinks his teeth into the delicious fare offered at locally owned restaurants. This month, Gallaher shares his thoughts on the cuisine served up at Larriviere’s – Wilson County’s only authentic Cajun Restaurant – in his new Wilson Living piece, Dining with Doc. If you haven’t made it out to Larriviere’s in Mt. Juliet, I’ve got two words for you – bread pudding! You’ll thank me later. And of course, Roy Harris is back with an inspirational piece titled, “America the Great!” Harris’ words will inspire readers to appreciate the freedoms we’ve been given.
From elections to July 4th, this issue is stacked with all things Americana. We hope you enjoy all of it.
Until next time, stay cool and keep reading!
