Next Step for Trustee Search

Knox County Commission must give 7 days notice before meeting to appoint the next Knox County Trustee to replace now Former Trustee John Duncan.

The appointment will be until September 1, 2014. A primary election will be held on May 6, 2014 and General Election on August 7, 2014 with the term beginning September 1, 2014.

Will Knox County Commission consider someone that will not be a 2014 candidate? Will Knox County Commission select one of their own? Current Property Assessor employee Craig Leuthold supposedly has an interest. County Commissioner Robert Lawrence Smith has indicated he would like to have the job. In my opinion, Former Trustee Fred Sisk would be a good place holder for the interim position.

    Well honestly John needs follow his fathers words of wisdom that faith will get him thru this and move on with his life and start new with his wife. And thats all I have to say about that…

    As George Jones sang, “Who’s Gonna Fill Those Shoes”…… The ink wasn’t even dry on the plea when the back room deals started. That pack of vultures on the County Commission were already slobbering to get at the position. This is what should be done, but common sense is never used when it’s concerning the welfare and being of the paying citizens of this embarrassment of a town we call Knox County. Someone needs to call up Fred Sisk, who knows this position inside and out and appoint him interim trustee until the election. Together with the powers at be and the remaining staff can conduct business as usual and put this behind us. But NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! that ain’t gonna happen. Smith, Hammond, and Leuthold will start the back room deals on the commission and meet and re-meet and once again re-meet before announcing that all applicants should submit their interest and resume to the commission where the commissions will review re-meet, and re-meet again until they get their voting in place to appoint a substitute trustee. The vote will go something like this.. Broyles will not be there she will have a prior engagement. Half of the commission will abstain from voting the first time, then a new vote will be required, one quarter of the commissioners will abstain from voting, and finally a third vote will be needed in which the entire commission will vote on the golden turd that we will call trustee. My money is on Leuthold, with a Smith running in second, followed up by Hammond. If you hang onto that County tit long enough you will finally latch onto a bigger nipple.
