When this issue of farragutpress hits the streets the dust should be settled on who will be sitting on the Knox County Commission and at the helm of four other county offices.

It is our hope that the wishes of the voting taxpayers will be heard and an end to what some have deemed as “good ’ole boy” politics.

Voters decided they were tired of career politicians by voting in favor of term limits to do just that, remove career politicians.

The State Supreme Court ruled County Commission would select replacements to fill out the terms of the departed, thus taking the people out of the equation in this aspect of representative government.

Some local media posted lists of interested parties vying to fill voids left by term limit enforcement. Many of these names on the lists were familiar and some were not.

Farragut will be represented by someone selected by just 10 votes. Hardly representative government.

The public needed more time to digest who these people were, what they stood for and what direction they intended to take Knox County.
