Dear Governor Haslam:
This is my 112th letter to you. Maybe the most troubled…..
I called your office this morning to try to set up an appointment on November 10 for Linda and I to discuss Tenn Care expansion with you. I was blown away by the response.
I was told that as a matter of policy you will not talk to constituents about Tenn Care expansion. Astounded does not even begin to describe my reaction. How can the governor of any state refuse to see constituents on any issue?? Especially one as central and core as Tenn Care expansion. You put a lie to everything you say you stand for. How can you even pretend to be for people you wont even talk to??
Governor what do you have to hide? What are you afraid people are going to say? What are you afraid they are going to do?? You have truly amazed me far past what I thought you could. This is leadership??
I will be returning to this topic again multiply times in the coming days.
Governor I am simply astonished.
