Tonight, the Halls Republican Club met and heard from Knox County Property Assessor Phil Ballard and former Knox County Property Assessor John Whitehead. Ballard had several employees attend tonight's meeting. He appeared nervous. As he introduced himself, he said I am Phil Ballard, your County Commissioner. His staff quickly corrected him, saying No, you are the Property Assessor. While it was raining today in Halls. At least Ballard was able to get in out of the rain and stumble over his job title inside qq pizza.
