The last several months, the Center City Conservatives Republican Club has had some great crowds and some informative programs. Tonight the club featured the 2015 City of Knoxville elections. Mayor Madeline Rogero was a BIG draw and her talk centered on the many initiatives that the City of Knoxville has implemented over the past four years and where the continued initiatives will continue the next four years.
The elections are non partisan and the openness of Mayor Rogero and all candidates (except for three) coming and making brief introductions before they headed over to a South Knoxville community forum was greatly appreciated.
City Councilman at Large Seat B candidate Pete Drew was a no show and did not respond to repeated invitations to attend, City Councilman at Large Seat C candidate Kelly Absher intended to attempt to make it and did not make it. City Council Fifth District candidate Jennifer Mirtes was a no show and sent no response to the repeated invitations to attend.
