Race wide open for Collierville mayor

Posted: Updated:

COLLIERVILLE, TN (WMC-TV) - After nearly a decade under Mayor Linda Kerley's leadership, Collierville's race for a new mayor is underway.
 
"Everyone is talking about it," business owner Billy Patton said.

With no incumbent, the field is wide open. The candidates include two aldermen, Stan Joyner and Tom Allen, and political newcomer Brannon Howse.

Billy Patton, owner of Patton computers, said he has seen a lot of changes in Collierville under Mayor Kerley, and hopes the next mayor continues the city's progress.

"If he's part of the current administration, he will do a good job," Patton said.

Attorney Dale Jamieson and supporter of Stan Joyner said the election is the most critical in years.

"It will set the next four years important as to what type of city we become," Jamieson said.

Jamieson said with Collierville's growth at the county line, it is critical to how the city develops.
