The votes are in and Glenn “Kane” Jacobs is the new mayor or Knox County, TN after defeating Democratic nominee Linda Haney. It was widely expected that he would win because that county leans heavily towards Republicans. He had a 2-1 lead in early voting before absentee voting results were reported by 8:30 pm.
During his campaign, he said that he would focus on things such as:
– Committed to keeping taxes low
– Renewed focus on quality of education
– Continue to attract new jobs to the area
– Improve our roads and infrastructure
– Full and absolute transparency
– Work to create safer communities
– A fresh outlook on limited government
Jacobs’ last appearance on WWE television was at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view where they had to work around his legitimate foot injury. There’s no word on when he will be back on WWE. He has said that he does plans on continuing to make appearances for WWE even when he takes office.
He will take office on September 1st.
