A husband and wife were both hoping to secure seats on the Blount County Commission.

In Blount County, each commission district has at least two seats. That means Tona Monroe and her husband Troy Ball could run for seats A and B in District 7.

Monroe beat incumbent Tom Greene and challenger John Young in the District 7-B race. Ball lost to Tom Stinnett by 156 votes in the District 7-A.

"We're supportive... behind each other 100%," Ball said, "We gave this our all so there's no hard feelings."

The two campaigned together and knocked on an estimated 2,600 doors.
