History

Mt. Juliet was formed in 1835 and became incorporated as a city in 1973. According to the Mt. Juliet Chamber of Commerce, the name of the town has two possible explanations. One theory is that the town was named for Julia Gleaves, a person who was renowned for taking care of those in need within the community. The most widely accepted story is that Mt. Juliet is named for a castle in County Kilkenny, Ireland. [1] For the song by James Blunt, see 1973 (song). ...

Government/Politics

Mt. Juliet was incorporated in 1972 and operates on a "City Manager" system. The city has five elected leaders: four commissioners (one from each of the city's four districts) and a mayor, elected at-large (mainly as a figurehead) and given a single vote on the City Commission. Elected officials, including the mayor, are not employed full-time by the city. The Commission selects and appoints a City Manager, who is employed full-time and runs the city's business on a day-to-day basis. The City Commission meets on the second and fourth Monday night of each month at 7:00pm at City Hall (2425 N. Mt. Juliet Rd). All meetings are open to the public and citizens are encouraged to make comments. Year 1972 (MCMLXXII) was a leap year starting on Saturday (link will display full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... A mayor (from the Latin māior, meaning larger, greater) is the modern title of the highest ranking municipal officer. ...


The current mayor is Linda Elam, elected in 2004. Commissioners include:

  • District 1: Ray Justice (re-elected 2004)
  • District 2: Will Sellers (elected 2006)
  • District 3: Ed Hagerty (re-elected 2004)
  • District 4: Jim Bradshaw (re-elected 2006)

All elected city officials serve 4-year terms. The Mayor and commissioners from odd-numbered districts are elected in Presidential Election years (2004, 2008, 2012, et al.). Commissioners from even-numbered districts are elected in Tennessee Gubernatorial Election years (2006, 2010, 2014, et al.).


Danny Farmer held the post of City Manager from 1983 to 2000. Rob Shearer was City Manager from November, 2000 until May of 2007. The City is currently searching for a new City Manager.


In November 2006 the citizens of Mt. Juliet converted the city's charter to home rule. This change will not immediately make any changes in the city charter. Rather, it would alter the manner in which future charter changes are approved. A city which has adopted "home rule" must submit all proposed charter changes to the voters for approval. Currently, changes to the city's charter must be approved by the state legislature, but are not submitted to the voters for their approval. Devolution or Home rule is the pooling of powers from central government to government at regional or local level. ...


Politically, Mt. Juliet leans heavily conservative. Party politics play no role in city elections, as city growth tends to be the central issue in every race. Mt.

Both were re-elected to their posts in 2006. In 2002, after many years in Tennessee's 6th Congressional District, Mt. Juliet was redistricted into the 5th Congressional District, which derives the bulk of its constituency from liberal-leaning Nashville-Davidson County.
