There will be a reception for Mayor Daniel Brown from 1:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m., Monday, December 12, in the City County Building's Small Assembly Room.
Mayor Brown, who also serves as Councilman for the city's sixth district, was selected by Council on January 10, 2011, to fill the unexpired term of Mayor Bill Haslam, who resigned to become Tennessee's governor.
Mayor Brown's term ends on December 17.
Brown is the first African-American mayor of Knoxville and is the 67th man to serve as the city's mayor dating back to Thomas Emmerson, who became the first mayor in 1816. From 1791 until 1816 Knoxville operated under a commission form of government without a mayor.
