LaVergne Officials Cleared

According to the Daily News Journal, there will be no charges filed against four city officials for accepting tickets to a race from one of our local corporate giants. The story hit today’s newspaper, much to my personal relief. I’ve met several of these folks and it really appears that they want to serve the city and our residents in a fair manner.

Officials cleared of race-ticket wrongdoing

My advice to them in the future: Do not accept it even if 1,996 other people do. Especially when you’re in any type of public position – there will always be someone watching you. It’s an unfortunate by-product of public service.
