Brandon Knox Hopes for Positive Change in Clarksville City Ward 9

 

Written by Brandon A. Knox

Candidate for Clarksville City Council – Ward 9.

Election 2012Clarksville, TN – There has been an overwhelming amount of media concerning Ward 9 this year which has been generally negative, and I find that disappointing. Ward 9′s new boundaries provide an amazing cross-section of Clarksville, and epitomizes the qualities that are unique and special about our community.

I contend that Ward 9 represents the heart of Clarksville between it’s new and expanding development, in addition to the renovation of existing and established neighborhoods. There are four candidates that each have unique backgrounds and experiences to bring to our City, and I am proud there is such a high level of interest in making our City the best it can be.
