The Town of Farragut Needs to Retain Mayor Ford

I was asked by the Knoxville Journal in November 2008, shortly after Mayor Ford announced his intent to seek re-election about my thoughts on his candidacy for re-election. At the time I was the Immediate Past Chairman of the Knox County Republican Party and he had no announced opponent. The quote appeared in the December 4, 2008 edition of the paper.

The announcement of the former failed candidate for U.S. Congress to seek Mayor of the Town of Farragut has not changed my position about Mayor Ford or the town’s need to keep him as Mayor.

“I am pleased that Mayor Ford has decided to seek another term as the Mayor of the Town of Farragut. While I have disagreed with positions of Mayor Ford in the past. No disagreement has been taken personally by either of us.”

“No one can dispute the fact that the Town of Farragut has experienced significant growth over the past four years. There are a couple of personalities within the Town and town leadership that have ulterior political ambitions. Those ambitions must be kept in check. The work of the Town should be for the good of the people and Town of Farragut.”

“There are potential actions that will require the steady hand of an experienced leader, Eddy Ford is that Experienced, Steady, Consistent Leader to Lead the Town of Farragut the next four years.” – Brian Hornback, Immediate Past Chairman of the Knox County Republican Party. November 30, 2008.
