I had a wonderful afternoon here in our little town...Our Governor—Gov. Bill Haslam and many other Tennessee officials came here to announce a multi-million project that had literally just been funded!!! The federal funding had just been announced two hours prior to our meeting...That means JOBS to our little corner of the world...and boy do we need them...
Our largest employer (Goodyear) has just announced plans to leave this year (overseas). That leaves almost two thousand employees jobless!!! The project announced today has been “in the works” for over a decade!!! It is called Cates Landing and is a riverport in a neighboring county.
Lots of hard work and lots of prayer works!!!
Now to the fun stuff...There was a lot of professional press at this meeting!!! I asked and was granted the privilege to get these photos of Gov. Haslam and his lovely wife, Crissy... They were exceptionally nice to me and even asked another photographer to get a photo of me with them.
