I hope it doesn't cut into happy hour.
Here's the sun shined agenda:
At the call of the Chair, the Knox County Election Commission will meet on Friday, April 15, 2011 at 4 p.m.. The meeting will be held in the Small Assembly Room of the City/County Building, 400 Main Street, Knoxville, TN.
Among the agenda items are reorganization and certification of the Town of Farragut election.
I expect elections administrator Greg Mackay will talk briefly, then turn it over to his five bosses. At that point, I figure - if they attend - the League of Women Voters of Knoxville-Knox County are going to want to speak about the newest commissioner, Rob McNutt.
Because, you know, there's some issues about where he voted and when.
The commission will reorganize. I figure they'll keep Chris Heagerty as chairman. (That spot automatically goes to a Republican since they have the majority in the local Legislative delegation.)
The secretary spot might go to Cameron Brooks. Cassandra McGee Stuart has it now, and since they're the only two Democrats (the party that gets the seat automatically), she might let him have a shot.
I'm not sure if we'll get much action on Mackay's job at this point.
I don't think he's getting fired today.
At the most, I think they may briefly discuss whether to take applications for the job.
Then they'll agree to meet soon to discuss it further.
Kind of like the county commission.
Why do something today, when you can put it off for later?
I figure Mackay is safe for another few weeks
