Knox County Commission Intergovernmental and Finance Committee Meetings

During the committee meeting this morning a couple of newsworthy items. First of all it appears that when the Lady Vols play basketball county government must come to a halt. Knox County Commissioner Mike Hammond informed the Commission that he could not attend a meeting on November 26 due to the Lady Vols play and that he would want to attend a meeting. He successfully kept the County Commission from having a meeting during the Lady Vols play. Should he have disclosed his scheduling conflicts and his inability to perform his duties on behalf of the district that he represents when he was campaigning for the position?

A public servant quote from Commissioner Scott Moore. "My vote is not based on what is on the front page of the Knoxville News-Sentinel or the editorial page of the Knoxville News-Sentinel"

The Knoxville News-Sentinel is supposed to report the news, not create the news or create public policy based on their biases.
