Since there are several legislative matters coming up soon, I've added links to our state legislators under "local government".

There are some handy tools at those sites such as phone numbers and email links where a citizen might send his representative or Senator an email such as this one:

Dear _______;

As you will be well aware, drastic changes to the State Open Meetings law have been recommended by committee that would legalize secrecy in governance and promote the back room deals that hurt Tennessee's local communities and destroy local government credibility.

We ask that you oppose this change to good legislation and take a stand on conducting the people's business out in the open as decency requires it should be.

We also ask that you inform us of your position in this matter. It is important that the people of Roane County know where you stand. Are you for open and honest government or not?

Thank you for your time. We anxiously will be waiting to hear from you.
