So, the KCHD didn’t allow me into the Zoom Media briefing, I asked what other media entities, except me, were not permitted today. The answer
We are not experts in Zoom but, it appears to be an IT issue with Zoom. The link to the media briefing is the same as what you have used in the past. Every media member who was in the ‘waiting room’ for today’s media briefing was granted access; your account never appeared in the waiting room. We regret that you weren’t able to get in to today’s media briefing, but we are happy to answer your questions below.
But apparently they do not want to answer my questions in a live stream forum. I have asked Knox County IT to resolve.
The next remaining questions involve the task force member Ryan Steffy that disrespected Buchanan’s boss Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs, his staff and Governor Bill Lee
I asked for a statement from Buchanan on the email from Task Force Member RYan Steffy directed to the Mayor, Governor, Mayors Staff and Mike Donila!
“Mr. Steffy is a public citizen and, as so, has the right to express his opinions.“
Buchanan maybe right BUT he was speaking in his capacity as a task force member about the operation of the task force.
Will she remove Steffy from the task force?
“I don’t think it’s appropriate to remove a task force member for exercising freedom of speech.”
Again he was speaking to the task force. I will be asking each task force member if they support Steffy and his remarks toward Jacobs, his office and Donila.
I asked does Buchanan believe Steffy reflects the city that he is appointed to serve?
Mr. Steffy represents himself, as a resident and business owner
