The candidates for Knoxville City Council Third District are Joel Bond, Brenda Palmer, Gerry Holman and Joshua Nelson.
Joel Bond is a local businessman and appears to have conducted some homework about the district he hopes to serve. He is a Knoxville native and is a father of three young children. He would make an excellent City Council member. Joel’s photograph is located to the right. Joel’s grassroots campaign has a Facebook page located, here. Joel also is a twitter and his twitter page is located, here.
Brenda Palmer brags of her involvement in the Hillary Clinton for President campaign. Enough said. No photograph was found of Palmer.
Gerry Holman is a former marketing guy. His expressed views appear to be conservative. He made the decision to enter the race within 24 hours of the deadline to qualify. His photo is below. His website is located here.
In the September 22 primary the top two candidates advance citywide. After the primary, we will endorse one candidate. But at this time the third district would be best served to select in the Primary, Joel Bond and either Gerry Holman or Joshua Nelson.
