Knox County appoints criminal to Commission

It is lovely to know that Knox County Commissioners know what is best for their constituents. Indeed, they are so informed about the qualifications of the new Commissioners that they installed without public input that they installed a drug dealer involved in a notorious drug peddling gang.

He sold drugs to poor kids in housing projects at 15 and says that it was a "juvenile mistake," but now he represents the people of Knox County's First Commission District thanks to the enlightened minds of Knox County Government. He wasn't elected, and the people of his district weren't even allowed to voice their support or opposition for him or his opponents, but it is just a "mistake."

See what happens when the public voice is completely squelched in something like this?

It just gets worse all the time.

Do some checking on Richard Cates too. I think cc should have done more investigations.

More investigations?

They didn't do any! Any government body that deliberately meets in a hallway to avoid public scrutiny in clear violation of the open meetings law can't be trusted.

This once and for all proves the willful intent of these scoundrels to disregard the public trust and their oath of office.

Frog Gigger-
Uh...I believe the anon was calling on me to investigate Richard Cates and others.

You are correct that the Commission didn't investigate. The sad part is that if you think Mike Ragsdale and his agents would not have operated in a similar manner were the situation reversed, you are, I am afraid, sorely mistaken.
