As of today, Tim Burchett has officially put up with my crap - in his role as county mayor - for one year.
I'll have a story this Sunday that looks back on his first year in office. I'm sure his supporters will say it's too negative; and his critics will say it's too soft. Whatever.
Also, on Sunday, I'll update the blog with interview comments I didn't get to use.
In the meantime, here's a picture (above) that school spokeswoman Melissa Copelan sent me. I was interviewing Superintendent Jim McIntyre for the story and he mentioned that Burchett has been touring the school with him. He said they got a nice picture of the mayor hanging with some students at Powell Elementary School.
Burchett is the one in the middle by the way.
