Several years ago (I believe when Sue Methvin was Knox County Republican Chair) the Knox County Republican Party had community satellite offices. I remember that Mrs. Trula Mugford who owned Mugford Realty hosting the South Office of the Knox County Republican Party. As I recall, Mrs. Mugford allowed a table in her office to have Republican candidate material and yard signs stacked in a corner of her office.
A 2014 version would be a business or business owner to donate an area of their business that would allow all Republican candidates (regardless of favorites) to place their material in the business. A countywide point person could be First Vice Chairman Buddy Burkhardt to work with the businesses and coordinating the material drops and fulfillment. Burkhardt could produce press releases and media advisories of the community satellite office locations.
I would call this ‘taking the party to the community’ initiative.
One such example may be a Northwest Knox County office on Oak Ridge Highway in Karns at Roger Kane Insurance. Obviously, Mr. Kane is a State Representative so he would be impartial to all candidates.
I present this satellite idea as a win win proposal to assist the party. I hope the party accepts it as it is intended, to be helpful.
