Sequatchie commissioner resigns to move into Dream Home

Posted: Updated:

DUNLAP, Tenn. (AP/WRCB) - Will Zimmerman has stepped down from the Sequatchie County Commission to move into the "dream home" he and his wife won in Chattanooga.

Zimmerman is a longtime commission member and Sequatchie County Executive Claude Lewis said Zimmerman's experience will be missed. Still, Lewis said Zimmerman's colleagues gave him a standing ovation Monday night, according to our partners at the Chattanooga Times Free Press.

The decision to move to the Hixson neighborhood came because Zimmerman's wife, Kitty, bought what turned out to be the winning ticket in the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway. She was notified in July that she had won the 2,768-square-foot house during the live broadcast on Channel 3 and US-101.

Will Zimmerman - who is 79 - said the win came like "a bolt out of the blue" and created some opportunities for the couple.

Each summer, Channel 3 and US-101 sponsor the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway in Chattanooga.
