A former Knox County clerk wants his old job back.

Mike Padgett picked up a petition to run for the clerk position on Tuesday. He held the job from 1986 to 2007 when he had to leave the office because of term limits.

Padgett, a Democrat, ran unsuccessfully against Senator Lamar Alexander in 2008.

Current Knox County Clerk Foster Arnett is running for re-election.
