Knox Mayor and WWE Superstar to Keynote GOP Picnic
Mayor Kane

SMITHVILLE, TN - The DeKalb County Republican Party will be hosting the 2023 Reagan Day Picnic on Saturday, September 16, at 11:30 a.m. at the DeKalb County Complex, Theatre Room. The keynote speaker will be Knox County Mayor and former WWE Superstar Glenn Jacobs. All Republicans are invited to attend this annual fundraising event to benefit the DeKalb County Republican Party.

“We are excited to have Mayor Jacobs speaking in DeKalb County,” Chairman Ryan Mollinet said. “While many know him as WWE Legend, Kane, Mayor Jacobs is a rising Republican star in Tennessee. He has held the line on taxes, supported law enforcement, and pushed back against the left’s “woke” agenda. Many are already talking about Mayor Jacobs potentially serving Tennessee in a greater capacity, and we are honored to have him.”

After a Hall of Fame career as a professional wrestler, most notably as WWE Superstar and three-time world champion Kane, and a few decades as a small business owner, Glenn felt called to run for Mayor of Knox County. In 2018, Glenn was overwhelmingly elected Mayor, and was reelected in 2022. As Mayor, Glenn has demonstrated strong, conservative leadership. Since Glenn’s election in 2018, Knox County has added over 2,500 jobs and seen over $217 million in capital investment. During COVID, he led the fight to keep businesses open while much of the country was locking down. On a personal note, Glenn and his wife of more than 25 years, Crystal, live in Knox County with their family, including two daughters, two sons-in-law, two grandchildren and five dogs.
