So, Justin Biggs began the campaign for Knox County Commission at Large Seat 11 in 2017 for an election held in May and August of 2018. He was doing videos every week and by the time the election rolled around the videos had over 1 million views. In 2017, he was talking about using the Knoxville Centre Mall aka East Towne Mall as a single source government facility.
Biggs bested his Republican and Democrat opponents by THOUSANDS of votes. So, the voters have spoken on the mall.
According to this news report of October 23, 2018, Jacobs is now the third Mayor to try this rescue of the federal TVA agency, with no real transparency of who else is making bank $$$ on this deal.
Here is an idea, put TVA East Tower to the VOTERS. Three mayors, eighteen years (two mayors equal 16 years plus Jacobs almost two years) and they still can’t make anyone in the real world (private sector) take the deal.
