Thank you for taking your valuable time to visit my campaign website! In the coming election, I am
asking for your support as I pursue the office of District Attorney. I believe that my unique blend of experience, passion, and vision for the future make me the right choice for your District Attorney.
I am Charme Knight, and I am an experienced prosecutor. I have devoted my life to
standing up for victims of crime. I
have proudly served the citizens of Knox County for over 20 years in the office
of the District Attorney General putting criminals behind bars. The vast
majority of that time has been spent pursuing those who have murdered,
raped, exploited or harmed our children.
I am passionate in my pursuit of justice. That passion is fortified each time I experience the despair of a family struggling with the victimization of their loved one. I will fight for them. It is also solidified when I feel the heartache of a family whose loved one is beginning to turn to a life of crime. I will fight for them. Justice means fighting hard for both families.
In order to improve our criminal justice system, as District Attorney I will use my experience and passion to shape the
policies and procedures that dictate how justice is administered in Knox County. My vision is to keep those who choose to offend away from us by being tough on crime and to implement plans to stop others from making
that irreversible decision to offend in the first place by being smart on prevention. I look forward to introducing my plans to you over the coming months as I elaborate on my motto -- tough on crime and smart on prevention.
I want to meet you and discuss your questions, concerns and ideas on
how we continue the fight against crime in our community. I will work my hardest and
smartest every day to keep our
community safe. I have the experience, passion, and vision that matter, and with your
support, together we can make a difference in Knox County!
