Breaking News: Hammond Is Outta Here!

Sources close to Citadel Broadcasting Executive Mike Hammond are saying that the fundraiser that was planned for his at large County Commission bid has been canceled. Brian's Blog has reported that Hammond is ineligible to serve as a County Commissioner for an additional term as he was elected County Commissioner twice. He was elected in 2004 and re-elected in 2006. The Knox County Charter states that no one is eligible to be elected to the same office if they have been elected in two previous elections. Hammond obviously has seen that the information Brian's Blog has reported is factual which has resulted in his withdrawal from the race that he had previously announced he would seek in 2010.

My information was that the fundraiser was re-scheduled due to a conflict with a Sheriff Jones function.

The new date is conveniently after the first of the year . . .
