There are only a few people who are recognized by just their first name. In Knox County one of those is Jimmy - Jimmy Parish for you readers out of the area in Internet Land. Jimmy has been the people's elected official for 38 years and he's hanging up his hat at the end of the month.
To me personally and it seems like to all I talk to, Jimmy has been a great listener. But he took it the next step and tried to figure out a solution.
Nice job Jimmy! We'll miss you in local government.
