The official endorsements by the Fraternal Order of Police Volunteer Lodge 2 and Knoxville Fire Fighters Association Local 65 have come in – and both have thrown their support behind Eddie Mannis to become the next Mayor.

“The safety of our residents is our #1 job. Eddie is the candidate who most closely aligns with our goals. We know from experience he is the best choice.”   -Kevin Faddis, President, Knoxville Fire Fighters Association, Local 65

“Eddie Mannis is the candidate who best understands public safety issues and strongly supports our officers who work everyday to protect our community.”   -Keith Lyons, President, Fraternal Order of Police, Volunteer Lodge #2

“I am honored to receive the endorsements of our public safety employees,” Mannis said. “They put their lives on the line every day to ensure we are safe and secure. As your next mayor, I will work hard to make sure they have the resources they need to keep our families and communities safe. My #1 commitment, if I am elected to serve as your next mayor, will be the safety and security of Knoxville’s families and communities.”
