Patriots of East Tennessee (POET) will host all four Independent candidates for governor in a forum on Monday, September 20 at 6:30 PM. The forum will take place at South Knoxville Baptist Church located at 522 Sevier Avenue in Knoxville. Many members of the tea parties and liberty movement have expressed their displeasure at the candidate choices given to Tennesseans by the two major political parties and are looking for an alternative.

The candidates who will be appearing at the forum are:

Bayron Binkley
Dr. Brandon Dodds
Samuel Duck
June Griffin

For more information about the event, please visit the POET website.
