To be eligible to vote in the April 2019 City Election, you must register by March 12, 2019. You can easilyregister online at https://sos.tn.gov/products/elections/register-vote, or complete a voter registration paper form and mail it to the Maury County Election Commission.
Early voting will be available March 22 through April 6, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays, and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays, at Winchester Community Center, 563 Maury Hill St., in Spring Hill.
The Board of Mayor & Aldermen is made up of an elected mayor and eight elected aldermen represented by four city wards. The four wards are each represented by two aldermen. The upcoming election will include one of each of the four ward alderman seats on the ballot, as alderman elections are staggered every two years. Though aldermen are elected in each of their respective wards, voters will have the opportunity to vote for the candidate of their choice in all four wards.
These are the citizens who met the Jan. 17, 2019, candidate qualifying requirements for the four available alderman seats, and will appear on the April 11 election ballot (listed in alphabetical order):
WARD 1: John Canepari, Liz Droke, Alex Jimenez and Bryan Watt
The Ward 1 seat was vacated in December 2018 by former Alderman Chad Whittenburg, who resigned from the position after moving outside Spring Hill city limits. The BOMA on Jan. 22, 2019, temporarily appointed Clint McCain to serve in the Ward 1 Alderman seat until voters elect a replacement to the position in April.
WARD 2: Matt Fitterer (Incumbent Alderman)
WARD 3:Daniel Allen, and Susan Zemek (Incumbent Alderman)
WARD 4:Doug Holtz and Hazel Nieves
Incumbent Ward 4 Alderman/Vice Mayor Bruce Hull, who has served 12 years on the BOMA, is not seeking re-election.
