Terry Frank Running for Mayor

Lifted from the News Sentinel:
CLINTON — Small business owner and native Anderson County resident Terry Frank announced Tuesday she’s running for Anderson County mayor.
Frank, 43, a resident of Clinton, is the first person to announce for the post in the special election in August 2012 to fill the unexpired term of former Mayor Rex Lynch.
Lynch, re-elected to a fourth term in 2010, resigned after he was charged in a sales tax fraud scandal involving vehicles he purchased and the sale to the county of a truck he owned.
County commissioners appointed Myron Iwanski to the mayor’s position, and Iwanski has pledged not to seek election to the special two-year seat.
Frank will be seeking the Republican nomination for mayor in the March 6 GOP primary that’s being held in conjunction with the state’s presidential primaries.
She said her candidacy will stress financial stewardship, low taxes and reducing debt.
A graduate of Anderson County High School, Frank has a bachelor’s degree in political science from Middle Tennessee State University. She has been a conservative blogger.
She’s served as chairman, vice chairman, secretary and treasurer of the Anderson County Republican Party.
Frank and her husband, Lee Frank, own and operate Nature’s Marketplace in Oak Ridge and have three children.
Note: She has also been a blogger, columnist and radio talk show host — always espousing conservative values. THe blog has been inactive for a while.
