Mayfield City Councilman Intends to Run Against Mayor Cantrell
Mayfield city council member Johnny Jackson is running against Mayor Teresa Cantrell this November as a write-in candidate.
Jackson's bid for Mayor comes after a failed run for county commissioner in the May primary.
Jackson has been on the city council since 1997 and says his goals are mostly aimed to reduce taxes and city spending.
Cantrell was elected mayor in 2010 beating incumbent Arthur Byrn by almost a thousand votes and is Mayfield’s first female mayor.
