Sheriff J.J. Jones confirmed on Facebook that he is not running for Knox County Mayor. The following is the message on Facebook. The following is a message from Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones:
“I want to thank everyone who has supported me in my decision to run for Knox County Mayor. Words cannot express my appreciation for the continued support I have received from the citizens of Knox County throughout the years.
Due to the health problems of a family member, which consume a considerable amount of my time, I will not be able to continue to campaign for Knox County Mayor.
Thank you for the trust you have placed in me over the years.”
Let’s keep Sheriff Jones and his family in our prayers.
On top of that my strong sources say Rep. Jason Zackary will be jumping in the mayor race. Blessed assurance,we are still waiting County Commissioner Brad Anders to pick up his papers and run….This race is keeping us on our toes!
