I have known Bill Knowles for many years and have had numerous occasions to work with his office. Bill is competent, honest and ethical in all of his dealings with the public. Bill has made many improvements in how matters are handled in his office and many of these have been accepted and instituted statewide. We need Bill Knowles as County Clerk.--Grady Williams

The Hamilton County Clerk's office should not be considered a political party office.  It is a complicated business that serves all Hamilton County citizens. With all the laws, rules, and regulations changing in this office daily, there is no way Bill Knowles' knowledge, experience, professional and business-like management can be duplicated.--Ed Gravitte

Hamilton County is fortunate to have the finest county clerk in the state, in the person of Bill Knowles. Your newspaper has reported that, in a day when most public offices have their hands out for more and more, Bill's office asked for a decrease in funding. Bill has been innovative and progressive, with such services as vehicle registration by mail and Internet and "no waiting" service for issuance of auto titles and driver's licenses.  His congeniality and selfless personal attitude has, when occasion called for it, even moved him to open his office on Saturday mornings for desperate clients. We know personally of an occasion when an absent-minded groom was reminded on Friday night that he didn't have the necessary marriage license for a Saturday wedding. Bill graciously met the fellow at his office and issued the precious document.  You will not find a better neighbor or dedicated public servant. We heartily recommend a vote for Bill Knowles at the August election.-- Wilma Dietzen


I first met Bill many years ago in East Ridge, and everyone who knew Bill spoke very highly of him.  His office has always been run in a very professional manner, You always get a warm smile and great service.  I was very glad to run into Bill and Marlene months ago on the campaign trail, and I was very impressed with love of the job as our County Clerk.  I am proud to call Bill my friend, and I ask everyone to vote for Bill Knowles.-- Perry Perkins
