Tennessee Confidential and donating to the campaignI throughly enjoyed appearing on Tennessee Confidential yesterday with State Representative (may he one day be Governor) Stacey Campfield, along with Division IV Court Judge Candidate David Lee. For those who missed it, eminent domain abuse (a hot button issue, despite what the News-Sentinel and certain people in county and city government may say) and the lack of ability of certain people in the judicial system were the primary topics of the program. Clearly, the callers enjoyed the discussion, and I was gratified by the expressions of support, especially within the 2nd District. I also want to thank David Lee for his support, and the connections he provided to me after the show. (Note to David Lee: I called the CPA, but he hasn't called me back yet.)
Had it been up to me, we would have had another hour to discuss many more important issues facing Knox County-there was so much more I wanted to talk about and I wanted to give the people more time to share their concerns. I'm hoping that I'll have another opportunity to do that on Confidential in the near future. In the mean time, I'll be posting campaign appearances on the blog, and you can be assured that I'll be pounding the pavement all over the district.
Regulars and others will now note that there is a button in the sidebar of the blog for you to make a donation to the campaign. If you are interested in making a donation, you can click on the "donation" link to the right. At least one person has rightly pointed out that Nicole's concerns about revealing our address are somewhat unfounded, since you can look up my address on the internet anyway. Fair enough. After consulting with the Mrs., those of you who must send a check by mail can do so by mailing it to:
Elect David Oatney
600 East Inskip Drive
Knoxville, Tennessee 37912
Of course, you can always click on the donation button right here on the blog. I want to thank everyone for their wonderful expressions of support and, for some of you, your willingness to donate.
God willing, I intend to see this candidacy through-right to the district convention, if necessary. I believe I can beat Mark Harmon-Mr. Harmon makes a big deal about being so strong on "disability issues." I am a walking/rolling disability issue! (I'd love to see his face when he first gets a load of me.)
I hope all of my loyal readers will also stand with me, and who knows-stranger things have happened, and maybe we can take this thing all the way to the City-County building.
