A vote for the ineligible incumbent is like mystery meat on a sandwich
So the people of Knox County vote for term limits in 1994, the Tennessee Supreme Court rules this vote must be honored, and then five Knox County Commissioners sue to invalidate the Charter they have pledged to obey?
Why should anyone ever vote for these five people for any office? Diane Jordan, David Collins, Billy Tindell, Phil Guthe and John Griess have betrayed their office, the people of their district, and their oath by filing a lawsuit against the Knox County Charter they swore to obey. None of the 12 ineligible incumbents have suspended their campaigns even though two of them have claimed they have.
These are the ineligible incumbents. If elected they cannot serve because of term limits. Print this out and carry it with you.
Diane Jordan (D-1st District)
David Collins (R-2nd District)
Billy Tindell (R-2nd District)
Wanda Moody (R-3rd District)
John Schmid (R-4th District)
Phil Guthe (R-4th District)
John Griess (R-5th District)
Mark Cawood (D-6th District)
Mary Lou Horner (R-7th District)
Michael McMillan (R-8th District)
John Mills (R-8th District)
Larry Clark (R-9th District)
Take this list and request a write-in ballot. Vote for anyone except these 12 people.
Don’t let these ineligible incumbents ignore the will of the people. A vote for the ineligible incumbent is like mystery meat on a sandwich. You don’t know what you are getting. Since they don’t have the decency to obey the will of the people send them packing. Throw them out. Find a good write-in candidate to vote for. Or simply do not vote in this particular race. Do not reward these people. Vote for someone else or shun them.
