Padgett called Rogero a "government bureaucrat" the day after the election. That's a lame way of saying she has three decades of proven city-wide leadership, while he refuses to answer the first question you'd ask a job applicant: What's your experience? Apart from two articles by Mr. Sullivan and Ms. Vines in the summer, Padgett's lack of executive experience is a news blackout - why? HAS Mr. Padgett ever run anything bigger than a lemonade stand? As for the "Padgett Plan:" You can preview his talking-points in Mayor Brown's Budget Presentation in April 2011: "Mayor Haslam outlined four major goals. Mayor Brown has retained this emphasis: "Stronger, safer neighborhoods; City services you can count on, at a competitive price; An energized downtown; everybody's neighborhood; More and better jobs." see http://www.cityofknoxville.org/budget... So much for Padgett's "vision" - the question is not those common goals, but who has the savvy to reach them?
