Washington County (TN) Commission Getting Overhauled Next Month

The changes voters in Washington County, Tennessee put into motion will go into effect next month.

On August 31, four newcomers will be sworn in as county leaders, including newly elected mayor Joe Grandy.

Of the open seats, seven were on the ballot- more than half will now be filled by some new blood.

The changes, post-election, makes Greg Matherly the longest serving county commissioner on the 15-person board. He is going into his seventh term.
