Mayfield city council member Johnny Jackson is running against Mayor Teresa Cantrell this November as a write-in candidate. 

Jackson's bid for Mayor comes after a failed run for county commissioner in the May primary.

Jackson has been on the city council since 1997 and says his goals are mostly aimed to reduce taxes and city spending.

Cantrell was elected mayor in 2010 beating incumbent Arthur Byrn by almost a thousand votes and is Mayfield’s first female mayor. 

Rob Canning is a native of Murray, KY, a 2015 TV Production grad of Murray State. At MSU, he served as team captain of the Murray State Rowing Club. Rob's goal is to become a screenwriter, film director or producer and looks to the likes of Quentin Tarantino and Guy Ritchie for inspiration. He appreciates good music, mainly favoring British rock n' roll, and approves of anything with Jack White's name on it. When not studying, rowing or writing, Rob enjoys spending his free time with a book or guitar.
