KNOXVILLE, Tenn.—Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs offers the following statement on local election results:
“I am grateful to be trusted to serve another four years as Knox County Mayor. This is already the best place to live, work, and raise a family, and the decisions we make moving forward are what can help ensure we have the brightest future possible.
Voter turnout this year played a big part in race results—a lot of them were very close. And while the common trope is that votes don’t matter, nothing is further from the truth in local elections. Local elections are where the most impactful decisions are made.”
