KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Former city Councilman Rob Frost filed paperwork Tuesday appointing co-treasurers in his campaign for Knoxville mayor.

The co-treasurers are Ronnie Collins and Kim Christodoulou.

Frost says he doesn't intend to accept contributions from city employees or special interest PAC groups.

He was elected to city council in 2001 and 2005.

Frost graduated from the University of Tennessee and Tulane Law School. He practices law at Arnett Draper & Hagood in downtown.

Frost was previously involved in real estate development projects, and he and his wife, Erin, have restored two homes in the Fourth & Gill neighborhood.

In 2009, he was honored with the disABILITY Resource Center's Community Leader Spirit of ADA Award and was also one of 35 attorneys selected for the Tennessee Bar Association's Leadership Law initiative.

The Frosts have two sons.

The mayor's office race is drawing a crowd. Knoxville city Councilwoman Marilyn Roddy appointed a campaign treasurer in July as well as county Commissioner Ivan Harmon.

Knoxville Director of Community Development Madeline Rogero announced her run in August. She previously lost to Bill Haslam.
