Last Thursday State Representative Roger Kane officially announced his plans to run for Knox County Court Clerk. His kick off was at Calhoun’s on the River. The amount of people who showed up to support Roger was overwhelming. Many of his fellow legislators attended to his family and friends. The kick off started with people in and out and it didn’t stop.
State Representative of the 11th District Jeremy Faison, used his kind words to introduce Kane. He spoke about watching and learning from Roger along with his deep respect for how Roger has served in the legislature.
Roger spoke on how he upheld what he said and will not run again for state representative, as he said when he first run he would only serve three terms. He’s definitely not a career politician, although he may look like he has ran more than his opponent, it really isn’t that way because he’s only been in elected office since 2013.
He spoke about being a small business owner and how he can best serve the citizens of Knox County. While not in session he’s very active in the Karns community, teaching insurance classes, and continuing his own education. He’s one out of a very few seeking office in Knox County that hasn’t been in the good ol’ boy network of politics.
