I think we can all agree that we’ve had about enough of politics to last a lifetime. Especially local politics. November 6th can’t get here quick enough and THAT’S an understatement.
What once was a process that brought out the best in our city AND country, has now become an ugly display of hate, and division. That display has never been more evident than within our own Clarksville City Council. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – A recent issue concerning the city council email system has surfaced and I want to address some issues that were raised. The main issue relates to the request by local attorney Mark Rassas to gain email addresses of constituents and what has resulted since.
