Authors Note: I had a chance to meet 9th district candidate Gerra Davis Mary recently at Connie’s Kitchen in Seymour so I took the opportunity to sit down and speak with her. This is some of what came of our conversation.
What are you running for?
Well, I am a candidate for County Commission in the 9th district seat B.
Are you from the Seymour area? Tell me about your family.
Yes. I am the Granddaughter of Long John Davis, the daughter of Harry & Wilma Davis, and the wife of Ben Mary for the past 51 years. I am the mother to three children and the grandmother to nine, two of which attend Seymour Schools. My heritage goes back 150 years in Sevier County.... read the rest of the story by Subscribing now.
