January 12, 2011

KNOXVILLE -- Businessman Mark Padgett, a candidate for Knoxville City Mayor, congratulated Councilman Daniel Brown, who was elected Monday to serve as interim mayor. Brown replaces Mayor Bill Haslam, who resigned Monday and will be sworn in later this week as governor.

"I would like to congratulate Daniel Brown on his selection to serve as interim mayor," Padgett said. "I look forward to working with him over the next year, as we begin building on the successes of the past eight years and moving toward the next phase of our city's future."

"I applaud the transparency and efficiency of the City Council's selection process for our interim mayor," Padgett said. "Today, our City Council served as a role model for local governments across the state."

Padgett, a successful CEO who worked with Governor Phil Bredesen to make state government more efficient, is seeking a full term as City Mayor. He will use his experience to attract jobs, to make city government more user friendly, and to make Knoxville neighborhoods safer, more convenient places to live.
