KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — On Monday afternoon, Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs announced he would run for re-election in 2022.

“Four years ago, I pledged to stay true to my conservative values as Mayor. Nobody could have envisioned a pandemic and the economic shutdown that followed, but I’m proud Knox County has been able to weather the storm without a tax increase. By tightening our belt and making smart cuts, we balanced our budget while continuing to make forward-thinking investments in our community. If re-elected, the public can expect four more years of leadership with conservative values top of mind.”
