Smith and Carringer Had a Quid Pro Quo

Quid Pro Quo the word's origin is Latin and is defined as one thing in return for another or as something that is given or taken in return for something else. In other words a substitute. So, here is a story in the Saturday News Sentinel where Commissioners Larry Smith and Michele Carringer admit that they cut a deal in order to appoint Carringer as the caretaker for Commissioner Scott Moore's seat. Here Smith explains the deal. "I took her at her word that she wouldn't run against me. I did nominate her. She was going to help me in my campaign, and I would endorse her for 2014." According to Carringer, Smith has tried to persuade her again, "He wanted me to run at-large so I wouldn't run against him,". Now, Smith is crying fowl alleging that Carringer lied. Now, Now Larry all of Knox County knows from your testimony in two separate court proceedings that you have the market cornered on that kind of activity.

The best thing the 7th Commission district can do is elect someone other than one of these two. But, if these two are the only choices than it would be better to take Carringer
