Knox resident and local businessman, Mark Smith, has announced his intention to seek the office of Knox Mayor. Smith is the owner of the M.C. Smith Funeral Home and the current President of the Starke County Council as well as a very active member of the community.
He says, “The fiscal condition of the City of Knox has traditionally been good, however, with the changes that we have been handed, close attention must be given to the finances of the City if we are to continue the level of service currently being provided to our residents.”
Smith joins current Mayor, Rick Chambers, in the race for the Mayor of Knox.
The Starke County Clerk’s Office helped two other candidates file for office last week. Dave Kesvormas, Sr. has filed for a seat on the Hamlet Town Board and Ronald E. Parker has filed for a seat on the Knox City Council.
