Steve Carr Is New Obion County Mayor

Union City, Tenn.–Steve Carr defeated long-time Obion County Mayor Benny McGuire at Thursday’s election.

County Mayor-Elect Carr received 2,010 to McGuire’s 1,771. McGuire has been County Mayor for 16 years and called Carr to congratulate him on his victory.

Upon his victory, Carr said, “No matter what words I use, I feel they will be inadequate to fully express to each of you the depth of my heartfelt gratitude for all of your awesome encouragement, enthusiasm, support, and especially your prayers for my campaign. You are the reason that I sought this office, and you are the reason that I was elected to this office. I did not accomplish this alone. I could not have executed this campaign without all of you. I am truly grateful for your votes and for the confidence you have shown in me by electing me to be the next Mayor of Obion County. There are so many that I want to thank, but if I start mentioning names, I am afraid that I might accidentally overlook someone. First and foremost, I want to thank my Heavenly Father for giving me the guidance and strength to mount this campaign. I want to thank each and every one of you who were involved in anyway with my campaign. Your commitment and faithfulness got the job done. I do want to thank my wife Renee, and our son Stephen, for their hard work throughout this journey. I certainly could not have run this race without their support. I am also grateful for the help of my brother, Danny and other family members, dear friends, and all of you who had any part in helping me win this election. You will never know how much I truly appreciate your help. I am looking forward to working together with other leaders throughout Obion County in an effort to improve the quality of life for all of our residents. I want to thank Mayor Benny McGuire for his 16 years of service as County Mayor. I received a nice phone call of congratulations from him, and I truly appreciate that. I also want to thank Joe Lewis, Mayor of Woodland Mills, for the nice text he sent to me. I want to thank all of the candidates who ran for office, and for their interest in working to make things better in Obion County. As the election is now behind us, it is time to move forward, and work collectively to advance our county. I am confident that as we work together, we will accomplish much in the days ahead. I truly believe that our future is bright in Obion County, and I am looking forward with great anticipation, to all that we are going to accomplish together.”
