Mayor Don Zoutte has served Knoxville for two terms. Zoutte says he has had a lot of good times, but there have been tough times as well, getting things done that have to be done. Zoutte listed the three things that are most important to him – his wife and family come in at number 1; the City of Knoxville is second and rounding out his top three are the veterans; but he says sometimes those three get intermingled. He says he has always tried to do what is best for Knoxville, and he has learned something new every day. He says he is a little disappointed he didn’t win again, but is not upset and is ready for the break. Zoutte says he’ll continue to lobby in Des Moines, and he’s already volunteered for two committees in Knoxville.
