Via phone, Albert Baah provided his insightful answers to our questions.
1. Introduce yourself to Knoxville, who are you, and why are you running?
My name is Albert Baah and I am running for County Commission 1-A. I have been a resident of Knoxville since 1974; I would like to see changes in Knoxville to make this city a better place for our children. I would like to see improvements in education for young people, better law enforcement, and in a nutshell I would like to see the city become a better place for all citizens.
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?
Anybody who knows anything about making decisions realizes that analyzing the problem at hand is the key to making sound decision. I will not be above the citizens whom elect me to serve them; I will be a servant to the people. I will not forget why people voted for me. The main focal point of my campaign is the people and community. I would like to stop the inefficiency and waste of the government.
3. What 5 things could you not live without?
Freedom, Justice, Good education for children, Safe Environment, Clean city to live in.
