“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.
