I don't usually write about Knoxville stuff. Because it's boring mostly.
But, anyhoo, I just got off the phone with Ron Peabody. I'm sure you've heard of him. He hates the homeless. No, I'm kidding. But he has been against the local Ten Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness and is recently working with Compassion Knoxville to help redesign it. Or something.
But, I'm rambling. He just filed his appointment for political treasurer (he picked Ruthie Kulhman) for seat C. (That's a city-wide seat by the way.)
Other candidates currently running for that seat are Terry Milligan, Finbarr Saunders (who has long championed the TYP) and Sharon Welch.
Peabody said he'd issue a news release about his candidacy tomorrow morning. He also said he'll resign tonight from Compassion Knoxville.
