Knoxville, TN  - Michele Carringer voted to support our Knox County Sheriff's Officers and Jail Officers by voting to amend the         

                                                                                                       upcoming budget to support a $1,500 bonus for all of their hard-work

                                                                                                       and dedication to the citizens of Knox County.  "Tonight I joined with 7 of

                                                                                                       my fellow County Commissioners to ensure that the men and women,

                                                                                                       who risk their lives everyday for all of us in Knox County, received a

                                                                                                       modest bonus. Our Knox County Sheriff Deputies have worked around

                                                                                                       the clock, through the pandemic serving each of us, and we cannot risk

                                                                                                       losing great deputies. There’s so much I could say but I’ll let my actions

                                                                                                       on this issue speak for me.

As the economy improves I know that County Commission and Mayor Jacobs will begin looking at other priorities to continue investing in our greatest asset, our people."
