The Mannis Campaign Icon is referred to as the 'Wheel of Progress.' The wheel is made up of six figures, each representing a city voting district. Their arms are raised, and joined together in a circle, demonstrating the community and inclusiveness that I believe Knoxville needs, to continue to thrive. The sun in the center reflects the bright future I see for this incredible city that we all call home.

Loyalty BLUE

References upper corner of Knoxville City flag. This reflects the commitment that I have had to this city throughout my life, and my determination to make sure Knoxville continues to grow and prosper, as I believe it can.


References lower corner of Knoxville City flag. Knoxville requires strong leadership, and a mayor who is not afraid to make the tough decisions required to take Knoxville to the next level. We need someone who has the courage to battle for what is right for this city, and the perseverance to see through projects to completion. That is what I am committed to bring to Knoxville as Mayor.

FAITH WHITE: References center of Knoxville flag; represents faith. Knoxville brings together people of all faiths and all beliefs. Whatever your individual beliefs, I know that we are all united by our shared belief in this city, and the potential for Knoxville to become a jewel in the crown of the South-East. As mayor, I will be committed to turning this belief into reality.
