Six people have requested materials regarding city elections in Knoxville this fall. Thus far, Don Zoutte and Brian Hatch have pulled nomination papers for mayor, while Elsie Kemp, Mike Roberts, Cindy Glick, and Will Gingerich, have done so for City Council. Two seats are open on the City Council for a four year term, including Kemp’s current spot as well as Dave Roozenboom’s. Zoutte currently serves as mayor – that is a two-year term. The deadline for submission of nomination papers is September 19th.
