There is now a race for the city of Corinth alderman-at-large seat.
Jacob Smith, a process engineer at KeyTronicEMS in Corinth, qualified as a candidate Friday, according to City Clerk Vickie Roach.
Smith, who is running as a Libertarian, will face incumbent Mike Hopkins, who is running as a Republican.
Smith said he is running for the board of aldermen because he is concerned about the crime rate and the conditions of city streets.
Hopkins was not immediately available for comment Friday afternoon.
The positions of mayor, police chief and six aldermen will be on the ballot.
The only other race so far is for the Ward 1 alderman seat.
The deadline to file is June 8. The primary election is set for Aug. 7, and the general election is Oct. 9.
All of the terms are four years.
