Some 4th District Knox Co. Commish campaign kick-offs announced

Knox County Commissioner Jeff Ownby, who represents the 4th District, will kick off his re-election campaign 5-8 p.m. Sept. 11 at West Hills Pavilion, according to a note he just sent over.

Donations are not required, but are accepted, he said.

Ownby faces at least two opponents at this point - Janet Testerman, the daughter of former Knoxville Mayor Kyle Testerman, and Hugh Nystrom, the director of Childhelp Tennessee.

All three plan to run in the March 1 Republican primary.

According to local political columnist Georgiana Vines, Testerman, a Scripps Networks manager, will host a kickoff 5:30-8 p.m. at Bridgewater Place tomorrow.

Vines noted that Nystrom will begin holding events later in the fall.

As always, send me your political stuff for publication consideration.
