Haslam Corrected, That Is What Happens to an Establishment Status Quo Mayor

On June 5, 2010 this post has a video from the June 1, 2010 Knoxville City Council meeting where Bill Haslam maintains that citizen Ron Peabody is wrong, let’s watch it again

Well, guess what turned up in the comment section of the local liberal blog? Look it is an email from Ronald Mills of the City of Knoxville Law Department dated May 21, 2010 pointing out exactly what Mr. Peabody says at the June 1, 2010 council meeting. So, I am reminded of a saying that I heard growing up, “If you lie about the little things, you’ll lie about the big things.” But, I am sure Haslam was going by what his staff told him. That is the difference in an effective leader and an “establishment status quo mayor”. Peabody cleared. Haslam not so much.

    Brian, spread the word:


    “The purpose of the two Ballot Referendums enclosed on this website is to allow the people of Knoxville to have a voice they have not had before this time. It is not a discussion of the Ten Year Plan. That will come later. The choice is whether or not to let the people vote on this social experiment known as the Mayor's Ten Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness. It is your choice to make.”
