The safety of our neighborhoods is paramount. We have dedicated and skilled Police and Fire Departments. I want to help make sure all of us are safe where we live and wherever we drive, bike, run, or walk in Knoxville.
Mayor Rogero, Mayor Burchett, the Chief of Police, the Sheriff, and the Helen Ross McNabb Center are establishing the Behavioral Health Urgent Care Center which will provide services for people with mental illness. The job of the current and future City Council will be make sure we as a City follow through on the promise made to the neighborhood and the community.
Additionally, my wife and I are supporters of The Change Center which will provide safe recreational opportunities, a computer lab, a study center, and career services including part-time jobs to children and youth in downtown and East Knoxville.
