The WWE Superstar that we all know as Kane has announced that he is going to be running for the role of Mayor of Knox County, Tennessee.
Kane, whose real name is Glenn Jacobs, officially announced on Tuesday that he will be, in fact, running to be the mayor of Knox County.
When asked about his decision, Kane said that, “As Knox County mayor I promise to keep taxes low and make Knox County a place everyone can be proud of,” Glenn Jacobs said. “I see my role as that of a facilitator among the different communities in our area. And also I think that Mayor [Tim] Burchett has done a very good job with transparency in government, and I would continue along those lines.”
Glenn Jacobs aka Kane has been debating for a while whether to make a run for mayor but he said that his passion for Knox County is what drove to make the decision to run for Mayor.
“I think the most important thing is I care very deeply about this community, like a lot of people do,” Kane said. “And that’s the only reason I would consider getting into any sort of government because I do care very deeply. And I think it’s incumbent upon people who care about the communities to try to make a difference.”
Glenn Jacobs aka Kane will be running as a Republican in the race for Mayor of Knox Country and he wins, he will be replacing Tim Burchett when he reaches his term limit in 2018.
Hopefully everything goes good Glenn Jacobs aka Kane, because I wouldn’t want to see any other politicians receiving a choke-slam from the big red mean machine.
