First things first… Here are YOUR candidates for each district.
Stephanie Welch with 64.25% of the votes for a total of 487 votes.

Now let’s go back to Fourth District. The tie between Tindell and Parker will be up to the City Council to decide according to state law. This decision will be made very soon.
From now until November these candidates will be running city wide! So, let’s put the peddle to the metal and start some door knocking!
Your go to girl would like to congratulate all the candidates who ran, and a special congratulations to all the winners and McCalla Around Knoxville advertiser James Corcoran. It takes a lot to run a campaign so hats off to everyone who did just that.
