COVID-19 town leaders

A message from Board of Mayor-Aldermen, Smoak

These are unprecedented times. Our Town, along with the rest of the world, is facing a challenge that most of us have never imagined. Efforts to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus have impacted our businesses, our schools and our way of life, and we still can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Your Board of Mayor and Aldermen, along with Town staff, share your concerns for the future. We are especially sympathetic to the small business owners who are limiting their offerings or shuttering their businesses indefinitely.

Others have lost jobs or fear losing jobs. These are trying times, and we want you to know that we all hurt when our community hurts.

The Town of Farragut’s vision is to redefine quality of life with a beautiful, close-knit, connected community where families and businesses thrive. To return to a place where our residents thrive, we need to focus on connectedness.

Vice Mayor Povlin reconsiders, will run for re-election in August

Last weekend my husband and I had a long heart-to-heart discussion regarding my decision not to run for re-election.

He felt that I should reconsider this decision.

My husband has been my greatest cheerleader and supporter throughout my service as alderman for the North Ward. He reminded me of the many projects and policies that I successfully advocated for to benefit the residents of Farragut.

With his enduring and complete support, I have pulled a petition to run for re-election for Alderman – Ward 1.
