The Maryville Daily Times had a report today that the Blount Co. Raven Society has endorsed Joe Gallagher for Blount Co. Mayor. (The article isn't available online.)

The Raven Society's stated mission is "to support candidates and issues that protect the rural, natural, and historic qualities of Blount County and East Tennessee." According to the paper, the Raven Society believes Gallagher most closely represents those goals, and will promote "responsible and sustainable development."

(Ed. note: According to their website, Gallagher is on the Raven Society's Board of Directors.)

County Commission endorsements include David Ballard (1-B), Lowell Ridings (2-B), Wendy Pitts Reeves (4-C), Bob Proffitt (5-B), and Linda Jo Dees (7-A).

The Gallagher campaign also had an ad in today's paper highlighting his opponent's refusal to debate:
