Cook is absolutely right it is all about the money when it comes to Haslam and O'Day and how much they can put in their own pockets. They need to have concern about the State of Tennessee instead of how much money they can "supposedly save". And now during this time when we have presidential primaries going on Haslam is our TTV
To pick up where I messed up. During this time when the presidential primary is all over our tv Haslam is on there supporting his man and you gotta wonder if he gets in office too what happens then. Our elected officials are supposed to work for the people not the almighty dollar.
In regards to the closing of Taft Youth Center I would like to say that I respect Cameron Sexton and Jim Cobb for standing their ground and trying to keep the Taft facility open. On the other hand my feelings that our government is only concerned about themselves has been confirmed. Haslam doesn't give a damn about the impact that closing Taft is going to have on the State of Tennessee. He its only concerned with benefitting hisself and his click.
I wonder if the residents of the State of Tennessee realize just how drastic of measures were taken to make sure the vote to close Taft was in Haslam's favor. It is a shame that the elected officials of the State of Tennessee cannot freely vote and voice their opinions without being threatened to be "in trouble" if they don't do things a certain way.
It is really sad that we can't depend on our government to put the best interest of our state first. No wonder the world is in the shape it is in. The people we thought were there to fight for us and our rights are the very ones that are doing everything to ruin our world without any regard to the damage it may be doing to us the citizens. This move is a real shame and I have a feeling the State of Tennessee is going to be paying for this one long after Haslam is gone from office. But he is not worried about that because he will have his kickbacks and won't care what happens to us. He hasn't cared so far and he definitely won't care then.
