It seems that people are lobbying Commissioner Paul Pinkston to run for Knox County Commission. Although, Pinkston is eligible to run for another full term as he has only served one full term, 2006-2010. The half term he served from 2004-2006 was the remainder of his brother Howard’s term. Michael Hammond has served one and a half terms and is eligible to run and has announced his candidacy for a countywide commission seat. Sources close to Pinkston indicate that Pinkston’s phone has been ringing off the hook for the last 48 hours as he has been answering calls asking almost begging him to reconsider his previous position that he would not run in 2010. The citizens want Pinkston to run for the Ninth District County Commission seat.
At the bi-monthly Friday breakfast at Shoney’s on Chapman Highway the first sign attempting to recruit Pinkston’s run was unveiled.
Run Paul Run!
