Dear Senators and Representatives:
Thank you all for taking the time to meet with me this past Wednesday (I am sorry I was unable to meet with you, Frank and Randy – I missed seeing you both). I enjoyed our conversations, and felt I came away more informed than when I arrived.
As you know, I am tremendously concerned about the appointment of Mr. McNutt to the Knox County Election Commission, as are a great many of my constituents. This Commission is charged with ensuring the integrity of our electoral process. A Commissioner who has knowingly voted seven times outside his district calls that integrity into question. I understand from my conversations with a couple of you that Mr. McNutt isn’t overly concerned that he violated election law; this raises a tremendous red flag that should not be ignored.
I also understand that Mr. McNutt no longer enjoys the support of the majority of the Republican Legislative Delegation. I respectfully request that you publicly ask Mr. McNutt to step down, as private requests have, to this point, been refused.
For the past two and a half years, we in Knox County have been working tirelessly to restore the public’s trust and faith in our local government. This entire situation calls that trust and faith into question, and frankly is a setback to those of us who have been working so hard. A public request for Mr. McNutt to step down may indeed be ignored by Mr. McNutt and his supporters; however, it will let the people who elected you know that you have taken this seriously, and that you have done all that you can to rectify this situation.
I am very grateful for your time and your continued service to the people of our area.
Very truly yours,
Knox County Commissioner
