Updated Correction: April 6, 2018 5:05 pm In a phone conversation with Roger Kane, he challenged my memory on the number of candidates for Trustee in 2008. He believed there were 7, in fact in reviewing the results. We were both wrong, there were 6. Here are the results Fred Sisk 32.16% or 13,746 votes Steve Hill 30.34% or 12,965 votes, L.B. Steele 17.69% or 7,559 votes, Roger Kane 10.97% or 4,690 votes (4th place) Steve Rogers 4.97% or 2,122 votes and Hobart Lumpkin 3.87% or 1,654. So I was correct that Kane finished fourth, but it was fourth of six and not fourth of five. I am always happy to correct when I discover I may have missed something. It was NOT intentional to leave Rogers out….
Original Post April 6, 2018 11:40 am This week Sherry Witt has been all over Knox County campaigning to be Knox County’s next Knox County Clerk. Her opponent Roger Kane has been represented by other individuals. On Monday at the South Knox Alliance, Kane was represented by John D. King a one time opponent to Senator Lamar Alexander and an aspiring opponent to Knox County Commissioner Brad Anders. However, King never filed against Anders.
Representing Kane, King stumped his toe, he stated that the reason Mike Lowe, former Knox County Trustee was discovered to have had ghost employees was because of term limits. In fact, Trustee employee Fred Sisk replaced Lowe. Sisk went to work for Lowe on day one in 1994. It is interesting to note that Kane’s first of four offices sought was in challenging Sisk in 2008. Kane finished fourth in a five way race to Sisk, Steve Hill and L.B. Steele, Hobart Lumpkin finished fifth.
