In case anybody wonders, I

In case anybody wonders, I only thumbnailed the candidates who showed up for the meeting. I also gave them all a free pass, pretty much. Some really good candidates turned in petitions at the last minute, as well.

That was an excellent overview of the candidates (who showed up), Betty. Lots of insights in just a little space, really, which is where you excel.

Don't know where else we could have gotten it, especially so early in the race, either.

Glad you're still on the job via Knox TN Today.
