August 7, 2008 — Former Mt. Juliet Police Chief Ted Floyd picked up a petition and plans to make a bid for the Mt. Juliet District 1 City Commission seat.
Tuesday morning Floyd said he will challenge incumbent Ray Justice for the position.
“After I retired as police chief, I was confronted by numerous people suggesting I run for the commission seat,” Floyd said. “When I look at my qualifications, I can’t see how anyone else can have more knowledge than me about this city.
I worked in the police department for 25 years. I’m hearing people want a change in this district and maybe in the entire commission.”
