Rep. Watson Not Seeking Re-Election

Rep. Eric Watson announced today at a luncheon in Cleveland that he will not seek re-election to his House District 22 seat, and plans instead to run for sheriff of Bradley County. "I understand nothing lasts forever and everything has its season. And I feel like my season as a State Representative has neared its completion. I truly believe that my public service, my involvement with the law enforcement community, and my leadership role in different law enforcement capacities has prepared me for this next step in my life.” he said.
