Haslam to Step Down Later, as I predicted

Thirty minutes before Mayor Haslam held his 9:30 a.m. press conference today I predicted on my twitter and facebook that he would not resign earlier in order to avoid the special election provision and allow City Council to name one of their own as his successor before the regular City of Knoxville General Election in November 2011. Haslam will step down on 1/10/2011 at Noon on the same day Council will meet to name one of their own as Interim Mayor. They will serve as Council Member and Mayor. Does that mean the individual selected will receive both salaries?
