The Tennessee Conservative [By Adelia Kirchner] –

On Tuesday, Liberal Knoxville Mayor Indya Kincannon won reelection and will serve another four-year term, despite supporting corporate welfare, keeping taxpayers in the dark, and proudly supporting drag shows. 

In 2019 Kincannon was elected over Republican candidate Eddie Mannis, to be the 69th Mayor of Knoxville.

In this year’s primary election to decide who will be on the general election ballot for mayor of Knoxville this upcoming November, Kincannon ran against Constance Every, RC Lawhorn, and Jeff Talman. 


According to unofficial election results, Kincannon received over 57% of the votes cast.

Knoxville’s election rules state that any mayoral candidate who garners a majority of the vote plus one, in the primary, will be deemed the overall winner.

This renders the Nov. 7 general election obsolete when it comes to Knoxville’s choice for mayor. Kincannon has already won.

“I feel like if I can successfully navigate a global pandemic and reimagining public safety and just really a lot of unknowns, I feel like we can handle whatever comes next,” said Kincannon. “I’m excited. I’ve got a great team around me and the best is yet to come.”

She has also stated that the plan is to focus specifically on public safety and the housing crisis during her second term.

Back in August of 2022, Kincannon supported a proposal to use taxpayer dollars to offset additional costs of the Knoxville Smokies baseball stadium saying that “the public benefits of this stadium must outweigh the costs, and we’re assuring that that’s in fact what’s happening.”

In November of 2022, it was reported that Kincannon and her team intentionally kept taxpayers in the dark about the city’s next police chief. 

An attorney hired by the city to fight an open records lawsuit by Knox News, admitted that a police chief search firm was hired as a way to get around public records laws.

Kincannon and a committee sworn to secrecy even went as far as to share review documents, like resumes, only via video conference so that city employees could say they had no documents subject to an open records review.

In December of 2022, a drag event open to minors with parental discretion advised, was held at Knoxville’s historic Tennessee Theatre.

Not only did Kincannon state leading up to the event, that she wouldn’t interfere with the performance, she also proudly attended “A Drag Queen Christmas.”

“So glad to be at ‘A Drag Queen Christmas’ with so many merry Knoxville folks! It’s going to be a festive night!” Kincannon posted to her Facebook.  

This will be Kincannon’s last mayoral term as Knoxville mayors are limited to serving two four-year terms.

    57% of the vote certainly does not indicate overwhelming support. It only shows how uninvolved and uninformed conservatives are. Kincannon’s support of minors attending the Christmas Drag Queen Show should have been enough to oust her. After all, if her judgment is that poor on such a clear-cut issue, she has no place governing a city.

    So basically, she’s acted like a Republican while in office, funding a private business endeavor (baseball) with public funds, & circumventing laws without actually breaking them. But that’d be ok if she didn’t let a drag show happen at a publicly funded venue where the only people who saw it actually wanted to go see it.

    Either Knoxville voters are too lazy and stupid to care about the issues or the queers and Marxists outnumber the Christians and Patriots. The northerners and West Coast maggots are destroying Tennessee right before your eyes. It’s like Tennessee has “Volunteered” to be overtaken by extreme Leftists and RINOs.

      You are blaming people who move from other states into the state of Tennessee to bring liberal values with them. May I suggest that you look at people who have been here for decades and many who were even born here. Many of them like the ones I’ve had conversations with have moved to the liberal side. And yes those include christians. The we wonder why we have rhinos representing us. They know exactly how to ride the wave. They know that the same persons who complain are still going to vote for them.

    Knox County could very well be headed to flipping three County Commission seats to the looney left next year. The established and entrenched “moderate” Republicans like having a diverse government. They are on board with Socialists like Kincannon in office so long as their friends like Boyd get taxpayer freebies. Haslam and Ashe started this model. They are happy with moving farther and farther left, so long as their pals are getting paid. With the amount of money elected officials shovel out the door, there is no shortage of people to support them for re-election.
