Knoxville, TN – Following tonight’s mayoral debate, sponsored the Knoxville Chamber of Commerce, WBIR-TV, and NewsTalk 98.7FM, the Mark Padgett for Knoxville City Mayor campaign (www.VotePadgett.com) issued the following response:
“Tonight’s debate made clear that job creation and economic growth is my No. 1 priority for Knoxville," said Mark Padgett. “As our next Mayor, I will build on the gains we’ve made over the past eight years, and I will keep Knoxville moving forward. Now is the time to invest in another Mayor with business experience, and I’m the only candidate who’s started a small business, creating jobs and making payroll.
“I’m honored by the support and reception I received tonight. My vision for a vibrant and growing Knoxville is clearly resonating with families and businesses from all corners of the city. Together, we are building a campaign focused on growing Knoxville’s economy, strengthening our neighborhoods and improving city services.”
