Mt. Juliet voters have approved a measure banning city officeholders from holding other offices, 5,212 to 762, with all precincts reporting.
The measure could affect Mt. Juliet Mayor Linda Elam, who has not said whether she would give up the post if she won her race for state House, The Tennessean reported last week. Elam, a Republican, is posting a strong lead in the District 57 race with 14,447 votes to Democrat Allen Barry’s 4,475. Neither of the independents, Luther Lenning and Heather Scott, has amassed 2,000 votes.
