District 4 has a good pool of candidates to choose from including Logan Brummitt. He will be running for Knox County Commissioner Seat 4B.
1. Introduce yourself to Knoxville, who are you, and why are you running?
My name is Logan Brummitt and I am 29 years old. I am an Insurance Agent here in town working for Associated Insurors in Franklin Square. I was born, raised and have spent the majority of my life in Knox County. I graduated from Farragut High School in 1996. In college, I went to Cleveland State Community College for 2 years on an academic scholarship, graduating with my Associates Degree while playing baseball there too. After CSCC, I transferred to The University of Tennessee to play baseball. I played 2 years at UT and finished by graduating in December of 2000 with a B.S. in Finance. I am now a member of the UT Letterman’s club and I am on the board for the Young Professional Leadership Committee. The YPLC helps bring young professionals in Knoxville together while raising money for Cystic Fibrosis. I passionately believe that local government is the purest of form of politics in which it does not matter what party affiliation you have. What matters is the common goal to make Knox County the best it can possibly be.
2. We think it’s better knowing what not to do rather than having an extensive plan. What areas or interests would benefit Knox County not to venture into?
I think anything that would increase our general debt. We need to do a better job of reviewing and auditing our offices so that we can either eliminate or consolidate wasted money.
3. What 5 things could you not live without?
1. My family
2. My friends
3. My cell phone
4. A good cup of coffee
5. A progressive Knoxville and Knox County that is getting the support of the younger generation, like myself.
