Knox Co Election Commission, Come On!

In today’s “Big Metal Shed on the Hill” publication are reporting that the Knox County Election Commission Administrator Cliff Rodgers is looking into the eligibility of Gina Oster to be a candidate for Knox County School Board in the Third District. Read the story here. Rodgers is questioning her eligibility because she is a current schools employee.

Yes, there is a restriction that you can NOT serve on the School Board and be an employee. Serve and be a candidate are two different roles. The precedent has been set in 2000. Jim Williams was the Principal of Carter High School in February when as a candidate he defeated School Board incumbent Steve Hunley. Williams retired in June of 2000 and took the oath of office and began serving September 1, 2000.
