A year ago this month, the City of Knoxville had a primary election. In that primary election, Madeline Rogero and Mark Padgett advanced to the November runoff.
The three (3) at large City Council races were set up for a November runoff. Mark Campen was unopposed for his district race.
So imagine looking at the Knox Focus online tonight or a print copy beginning tomorrow and see where Former City Councilman and Former Vice Mayor Joe Bailey is identified as City Councilman and Vice Mayor of the City of Knoxville.
Surely, Vice Mayor Nick Pavlis will be surprised he is not Vice Mayor anymore according to the Focus.
It seems the Focus was not very focused on the facts. The celebrating of their Norman and Smith appointments as Commission Chair and Vice Chair must have been intense.
As Knox Focus Publisher Steve Hunley use to say about his papers role with the role of his competitor the Shopper News. "They say tomato, I say tomato" Well, if Hunley says Vice Mayor Bailey one year later and it is actually Vice Mayor Pavlis. Is that tomato or tomato?
