West Knox Republican Club Picnic

This afternoon the West Knox Republican Club held their annual July picnic at Rothchild’s Catering & Conference Center. A decent crowd was in attendance. Many office holders were present.

Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones had the best dressed shoes (as usual) in the crowd.

Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett, State Senator Stacey Campfield and Sheriff Jones talk to one another. Sheriff Jones is hidden by Campfield. County Commissioner Dr. Richard Briggs, the only currently announced challenger to Campfield was a no show.


In introducing himself, Commissioner Robert Lawrence Smith said “I am waiting to see what 2014 has in store.” He was sitting beside his advisor. Several sources have indicated that now that he has ruled the Trustee job out, that it appears that he will seek the Knox County School Board seat in the Seventh District. Primarily because it does not have the term limit provision. Many he could keep the job longer than 8 years.
