Haslam Resigning as Knoxville Mayor Jan. 10

KNOXVILLE – Gov.-elect Bill Haslam announced today he will resign as Knoxville mayor Jan. 10.
The timing of the announcement will avoid the calling of a special election to elect an interim mayor.
“My objective is to make sure we have the smoothest transition for the city of Knoxville,” Haslam said.
Holding a special election would cost about $240,000, Haslam said.
