***My subscription is now cancelled too!***
I urge anyone upset about the newspaper publishing the personal information of your friends, neighbors, and relatives to cancel also! I am not employed by TVA, but I am supporting those employees on this issue. We can't sit back and tell ourselves that this doesn't impact us simply because we don't work at TVA. We could be next! I don't want my personal information posted publicly either and am willing to cancel the newspaper to show my support. I hope there are a lot of you willing to cancel the paper also!

Ms. Gerber openly states that she has heard from many TVA employees who have requested that their personal information not be posted, yet she seems to be proud of the fact that she has the power to totally ignore the requests of the hard-working employees in the area. These employees are requesting nothing more than that their personal information remain personal. They wrote to her believing that if they spoke up about their concerns, she would listen. However, she has callously chosen to ignore their concerns. The number of emails she received reflects the level of concern these workers feel, but Ms. Gerber's ability (power) to ignore these concerns trumps their request for privacy.
I am not a TVA employee, but my response to such arrogance is to cancel my paper subscription! If the paper will post the salaries of others without an obvious, valid reason, it can invade the privacy of anyone in the area. The paper does not care about its readers; the readers need to go else where for their news! CANCEL your paper subscription no matter where you work, and urge everyone you know to do the same!
