Phillip Ballard, Knox County Property Assessor went to the School Board back when the Carter Middle School Gym was on life support. He begged board members just before the meeting. Never mind that the Carter community had been talking to the School Board members and had the votes before the meeting.
After the board voted to proceed with the Carter Middle Gym, Ballard was taking credit for delivering it.
Now, he has begun talks of running for County Mayor in 2014. Yes, he is beginning to boast that he can beat Mayor Tim Burchett.
