In this blog series, we share the Knoxville City Council candidates’ positions on clean energy and climate issues in their own words. Each of the blog posts below contains the candidates’ responses to SACE’s candidate questionnaire. The responses are ordered by City Council district, and alphabetically within each district. View candidate responses by clicking on each respective district below. We have also indicated which candidates have not returned the questionnaire.
Note: The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy does not support or oppose candidates or political parties. Links to reports, candidate websites, and outside sources are provided as citizen education tools. Candidates are listed in alphabetical order by district.
City Council is the legislative body of the City of Knoxville. Later this year, City voters will elect five members to the nine-member Knoxville City Council. Early voting for the primary election runs from August 11-26 and Election Day is Tuesday, August 31. The top two vote-receivers from each districts’ primary election will move on to a citywide vote on November 2.
