Arriola's wife picks up papers, but former clerk not running for office

Friday, August 10, 2012 at 6:06pm

Former Davidson County Clerk John Arriola's wife Michelle picked up qualifying papers for her husband to run as an independent for the same office he left six weeks ago. But his lawyer says he's not interested in the job.

Arriola's attorney, Bryan Lewis, said the former county clerk had spoken to him about it.

"John is not running," he said.

Arriola — who resigned as county clerk in June amid controversy over his practice of collecting fees to perform marriages — picked up the necessary paperwork Thursday to run as independent for county clerk in the upcoming November election, Davidson County Elections Administrator Albert Tieche confirmed.

To qualify for the Nov. 6 election, Arriola would need to collect 25 signatures from Davidson County residents and return his papers to the election commission by noon on Aug. 16.

Arriola, originally elected county clerk as a Democrat, did not immediately return a voicemail left by The City Paper.

On Tuesday, the Metro Council voted to appoint former U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper aide Brenda Wynn interim county clerk. Nashville Democrats had already nominated Wynn as its party’s nominee for the November election. Davidson County Republicans have yet to nominate a clerk candidate, and it’s still unclear whether they plan to do so.

Maybe the little missus is going to run for the lucrative Clerk job, Imelda Marcos style?

Nepotism, cronyism, favoritism and insiderism are all time-honored traditions in the Bible Belt....Mrs. Arriola could probably pull it off.....then she could hire her hubby as her aide.
