Chamber surveys Knox mayoral candidates

The Knoxville Chamber recently surveyed the Knox County mayoral candidates “on issues important to the business community.”

The candidates’ responses are now available on the Chamber website.

Unfortunately, only two candidates — Republican Tim Burchett and Independent Lewis Cosby — took advantage of the offer.

The other candidates missed a golden opportunity to let us know where they stand on taxes, economic development, the county budget and other critical issues. Burchett and Cosby both have some very interesting comments, especially on potential tax increases and the county debt.
