Mayoral candidates talk renewable energy

The Knoxville Chamber surveyed Knox County mayoral candidates - only two replied - on 11 questions including how the county can "better seize the economic opportunities relating to renewable energy."

Sen. Tim Burchett, running in the Republican primary against former Sheriff Tim Hutchison, and Lewis Cosby, a CPA running as an independent, were the only two to fill out the questionnaire.

Burchett said renewable energy technologies should be a "core component" of Knox County's "economic development portfolio."

Cosby advised that the county should "stay on top of all energy developments in the near future, and be prepared to move swiftly once more hard facts are known..."

The Knoxville chamber has posted the candidates' complete responses. Hat tip to Roger Harris' Rants and Raves blog for the info.
