Clarksville, TN – City of Clarksville offices will be closed Monday, February 15th, 2021 to observe Presidents Day.
Presidents Day, officially Washington’s Birthday is a federal holiday observed on the third Monday of February in honor of the first U.S. President, George Washington, who was born on February 22nd.
Washington, D.C. – This week, Senate Democrats voted to block consideration of U.S. Senator Tim Scott, of South Carolina’s, police reform legislation. I voted to begin debate on Senator Scott’s proposal, which I co-sponsored, because it will make police officers more accountable, encourage departments to ban chokeholds and adopt best practices, provide better training to police officers, and make lynching a federal crime.
Congress should have a serious debate and consider amendments on these important issues, and it is a shame that Senate Democrats won’t allow the Senate to even begin to consider this legislation.
Lamar Alexander says to Tear Down Andrew Jackson’s Statue would be a Terrible Misunderstanding of Our Nation’s History
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) yesterday afternoon on the Senate floor said, “We should not try to erase our history. We should not try to pretend it doesn’t exist,” in response to an effort by a crowd to tear down President Andrew Jackson’s statue in Lafayette Square in front of the White House:
“Presidential historians almost without exception put Andrew Jackson in the top ten of America’s presidents. They see him as a sophisticated, often subtle political actor who without his devotion to the union, against his own local political interests, the union might well have fallen apart in 1832 or 1833,” said Senator Alexander.

Washington, D.C. – In November 1621, after the pilgrims’ first successful corn harvest, a celebratory meal was held in Plymouth, Massachusetts. It wasn’t for over two hundred years that the meal now known as Thanksgiving was held on a consistent date across the nation.
Just days after delivering the Gettysburg address in 1863, President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving to be the final Thursday of November. In 2019, it is customary to reflect on the many things we are grateful for.
