  1. It’s so sad that Mrs. McKnight frequently comes out on the short end of the votes for moving our ENTIRE county forward. However, she’s a very popular representative in District 3 for good reasons. She gives it her best.

  2. Catherine is a very smart beautiful young Lady that happens to be a commissioner. A lot of people outside of her District call her for help to something done and she is on it. I am proud to have had Grady Smith as a Friend and I am equally proud to have Catherine as a Friend.

  4. I went to high school with Catherine. She has always been a kind, caring person. I’m not surprised at all by this article. I’m so happy to see her getting some credit for her hard work despite the circumstances of being in the minority.
