“Frivolous Spending by the Clarksville Gas & Water Department? Community Forum”


Clarksville, TN Gas and Water DepartmentDear Readers,

I received a phone call from a Ms. Rita Ewing who was so disturbed about the spending at the Clarksville Gas and Water Department that she and her church took it upon themselves to put together a public forum about their concerns.

Ms. Ewing is an elderly person who has chosen to remain quiet on a lot of issues but states in a phone conversation to me that enough is enough, and it is now time for herself and others to speak out on this issue.

She has already voiced her concerns to City Councilman James Doyle and has him on the forum agenda to speak.

“Time To Get Involved and Time For The People to Speak Out Forum”

When: Thursday May 24, 2007
Time: 6:00 P.M.
Place: Williams Chapel Missionary Baptist Church730 Needmore Rd,Clarksville TN 37042

Bring your Questions, Comments, and Grievances, This event is FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!

My organization the Urban Resource Center was asked by Ms. Ewing to help get the word out to the media and community.

I would like to make perfectly clear the Urban Resource Center’s position on this issue. Our position is as follows:

We have read the local media’s story on this issue and we feel that the story did not provide us with enough information to decided whether this is a politically motivated strike on the part of Clarksville Mayor Johnny Piper to distract citizens from the Marina controversy or if retiring city employers are entitled to recognition in the form of $500 rings and such for 30 years of service to their job and our community. We look forward to learning a lot from this forum so that we can, like the rest of the community, make a more informative decision on this issue.

The Urban Resource Center is dedicated to providing community service to all members of the community regardless of their political affiliation or political position. We are honored to help Ms. Rita Ewing and her church in anyway we can to make sure this forum is a success.

“Time To Get Involved and Time For The People to Speak Out Forum”

We will be discussing frivolous spending by the Clarksville Gas and Water Department with Special Guest Speaker James Doyle, City Councilman Ward 8.  Bring your Questions, Comments, and Grievances! This event is FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

For More information please call Rita Ewing at (931) 645-0393 or (931) 801-9319.
