Montgomery County Multi-Purpose Event Center should go Green

 

Written by John Kaler MSG, USA Retired

Letter to the EditorClarksville, TN – Literally thousands of concerned Montgomery county citizens are concerned about the Multi-Purpose Event Center not meeting operating costs and causing a tax increase to meet shortfalls.

To hold down utility costs the county should consider some combination of solar water heating, solar electrical panels, wind turbine and a green roof. Though they would add to to the initial cost the result could be money saved for the taxpayers!

Voter Registration Fraud by Montgomery County Exposed

 

Written by Thomas W. Terry

Letter to the EditorClarksville, TN – Friday, December 6th, 2019, was the deadline for the signature drive led by residents of Montgomery County. Those residents only wanted one thing: for their voice to be heard. They were understanding of the fact that not everyone shared their opinion and to that end they wanted the up and coming multipurpose event center at the very least put to referendum.

During the course of the MPEC debacle there have been a number of allegations and revelations brought to light, one of the most concerning of which is that there are approximately 57,000 invalid voter registrations belonging to residents who are either deceased, no longer live in the county, or who are ineligible to vote.
