Knoxville, TN – The Mark Padgett for Knoxville City Mayor campaign (www.VotePadgett.com) today released the “Padgett Plan,” a 28-page document that outlines ideas and opportunities to move Knoxville forward.
“From our police force to infrastructure to parks and greenways, the only way we can afford to pay for programs and services we all care about is by growing jobs and our economy and cutting waste and red tape in city government,” Padgett said. “I’ve shared this vision for Knoxville with hundreds of community groups, neighborhood associations, and businesses and at over 45 debates. The ‘Padgett Plan’ is the culmination and next phase of my conversation with Knoxville. I believe that voters deserve to hear specific ideas on how to create jobs, strengthen our neighborhoods and improve city services.
“This plan is not meant to be exhaustive, but merely an outline of where I see some great opportunities for Knoxville. My administration will be organized and designed to address unforeseen challenges and opportunities facing Knoxville.”
The “Padgett Plan” is organized into four sections:
1. Job Creation and Economic Growth
2. Stronger, Safer and More Connected Neighborhoods
3. Transparent, Efficient and Accessible Government
4. Downtown Knoxville – Everyone’s Neighborhood

The campaign has also posted more than 50 videos on YouTube (www.YouTube.com/PadgettForMayor) to share Mark’s position on everything from codes enforcement and homelessness to red light cameras and parks/greenways.
