Clarksville, TN – In a speech before the Montgomery County Republican Women today, Dr. Mark Green, State Senate candidate for District 22, announced that he will not accept per diem payments while serving as a State Senator if he is elected to replace incumbent State Senator Tim Barnes. Green said the $173-per-day stipend is only intended to provide overnight accommodations and meals for legislators living too far from Nashville to commute so he will not accept the payments.
“As a small business owner, I would never pay an employee a travel allowance just to stay at their home and show up at the office the next morning,” said Green, who lives just 37 miles from the State Capitol. “The taxpayers should not be on the hook for me sleeping in my own bed and eating my own food just because I’m serving in the state legislature.”

Clarksville, TN – District 74 State Representative John Tidwell makes the first impression of a “good old country boy” who just climbed out of the combine to greet you. Once you get him started, he’s like your country neighbor talking about the crops and the livestock, he’s probably not going to stop talking until you tell him you’ve got to get home for dinner, but make no mistake, he’s just as comfortable roaming the halls of the Tennessee Legislature as he is leaning against the fencepost “shooting the breeze.”
Tidwell was a guest on “Clarksville in Review” this weekend on WJZM 1400am with host Hank Bonecutter, on the heals of last Thursday’s primary where Lauri Day defeated Nick Steward for the republican nomination.
