Election 2012Clarksville, TN – I, Brandon A. Knox, am announcing my candidacy for the Ward 9 Clarksville City Council. I am excited, honored, and humbled by the opportunity to help represent the community I have been raised in.

I qualified for the ballot on July 18th, 2012 thanks to the help of family, friends, and the community. I am not a career politician, therefore I have no hidden agenda and would be able to come into the Council with open eyes and open ears. I intend to represent not only the constituents of Ward 9, but also the City of Clarksville with professionalism and respect.

Unlit flame on July 4th a symptom, could it be Clarksville just does not care?

 

Eternal Flame Memorial unlitThe Pillar of Cloud, Pillar of Fire  aka the Eternal Flame was conspicuously AWOL on July 4th! Our Eternal Flame seems to spend most of its time unlit. What does this signify about our dedication to “Supporting Our Troops!”

As the Independence Day weekend moves on, the smoke from fireworks has dissipated and the residue from our recent fireworks show have been cleared away. The traffic jams cleared up, and we each go on our merry way. Yes, the city’s celebration was quite a sight. And as noted in previous coverage here, the Pillar of Cloud, Pillar of Fire Eternal Flame Memorial was burning bright and strong at 11:30PM on July 3rd. The flags at City Hall were still sadly un-illuminated but the eternal flame did shine for that night. Hallelujah!!!
