Sorry Rick, apparently after 35 years serving our country and retiring from the U.S. Army at the rank of a Major General, you are not Democrat enough to serve Knox County and the constituents of the 8th Congressional District.

At least that is what I gathered after wasting 25 minutes of my life trying to reason with our Knox County Democrat Chairwoman Sandi Stewart.

The voters of the district are obviously not capable of determining our representation but rather need the party chairwoman to decide for us. Actually a lesson that I learned while talking with Sandi is that one should not hurt her feelings by not speaking with her first if planning to run for office. Shame on you Rick for asking her a mere three months before Friday's deadline.

If any of you are speculating as to why the Democratic Party has struggled recently, look no further!

Apparently Knox Democrat officeholders were “Republican” enough to swap parties recently? Appalled as I am? Voice your displeasure.
