They mayor told 6 News he feels good about what he's been able to do in office thus far.

"I think we've done some good things. I think we've kept our taxes low and haven't raised taxes. I think we've restored a lot of trust to county government. It's a blessing to me, I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be the mayor of Knox County," Burchett said.

6 News asked Burchett about his campaign slogan, which hasn't yet been announced.

"I'm so tight I haven't come up with a new slogan just yet. I'm not going to spend anymore money until we have to."
