Mackay to take job with Knoxville

Greg Mackay
Looks like former Knox County Elections Administrator Greg Mackay has landed a job with the city.

According to the latest spin piece coming out of Knoxville's side of the Death Star, Mayor Madeline Rogero today hired Mackay as director of public assembly facilities. He succeeds Bob Polk, who retired from the gig in November.

I got no idea what the job does or what it pays.

Mackay, a Democrat, served as elections administrator from 2003 to 2011. Since then, he got a job doing something I can't remember, but it's probably nowhere as cool as whatever it is he'll be doing for the mayor.

The hippie has the full press release right smack here.

I'll say this for Maddy - she knows how to take hiring advice.

Man. We'd be screwed if it weren't for Bill Lyons. Thank God he stuck around to help run this city after Haslam split for Nash Vegas or else we'd be as boned as boned gets.
