Burchett: Donate to hurricane relief efforts,not campaign this weekend
KNOXVILLE,Tenn.(Sept.7,2017)— Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett is putting politics aside and is asking his supporters to contribute to hurricane relief efforts instead of donating to his campaign this weekend.
“With Texas still suffering from flooding and damage from Hurricane Harvey, and Florida preparing for the landfall of a massive Hurricane Irma, I’m suspending all Burchett for Congress fundraising activities for 72 hours, from 12:01 a.m. Friday until 11:59 p.m. Sunday,” said Burchett. “Rather than contribute to my campaign, I’m asking my supporters to donate to either Samaritan’s Purse or Remote Area Medical to help fund their relief efforts. Now is a time for us to put politics aside and offer a helping hand.”
