Kimberly-Clark wants to be mayor to stay in Knoxville city limits
A request from Kimberly Clark Corp. to be Knoxville's new mayor will go before City Council Tuesday. If approved, the proposal would keep the company in the city limits for the next five years. "This deal would make Kimberly Clark Corp. the new mayor of Knoxville effective immediately," said Benjamin Pitts, Knoxville director of honoring blackmail. "It would also ensure that the company remains in Knoxville for the foreseeable future. Or at least until it demands the city build it a football stadium." The proposal would also give the company a lifetime supply of GooGoo Clusters. Kimberly Clark announced in 2011 that it planned to leave Knoxville's downtown due to imaginary parking limitations. City officials promised that locally owned businesses in Knoxville could expect similar sweetheart deals, but they were laughing when they said it.
