Tourism is a major source of revenue for the state of Tennessee

Dear Editor:

The following letter has been sent to Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam:

Gov. Bill Haslam
First Floor, State Capitol
Nashville, TN 37243

Via:  Mr. David Smith
Media Contact
Fax 1-615-741-1416

Governor Haslam:

I contacted the Tennessee Governor’s office about the lawless situation in Monroe County, TN.  That was when your predecessor was in office.  I was blown off and my comments were not kindly received.  I have been following the fiasco with LCDR Fitzpatrick for a long time.  He, obviously, was not the only person in Monroe County to be railroaded and denied of their civil and constitutional rights.

The letter by Sharon Rondeau of The Post & Email is both factually accurate and is extremely damming for the State of Tennessee.

I also contacted your tourist office and explained that I will not travel into or through the state until law and order is restored.  I will push this concept with as many RV travelers as I can.

Do you have the courage to do the right thing?

Robert H. Cipperly,  LCDR USN (Ret.), CIA (Ret.)

  1. Not any question in my mind that Mr.Cipperly is correct.Some may disagree but
    cutting off the funds to these entities is the best plan of action to get Officials
    to start correcting what is being reported.

  2. Good job! Keep hammering! As a retired Oklahoma peace office I am outraged at was is happening out in Tennessee. I pray that the day of patriots taking the reins of our government and restoring adherence to the Constitution is soon approaching.

    1. Dan, I am hoping that one of our ?representatives? will man up and bring this constitutional crisis to the forefront. That is my hope for a peaceful solution. Unfortunately, the day you are referring to may be sooner than we think.

    1. I have had no reply yet. Just fax’d the letter this afternoon. I will follow up with phone calls. If it is like the many other emails, fax’s and phone calls, I probably won’t get a response. Will pass any response on if I get one.

  3. I faxed a letter to the governor’s office this morning stating I support the effort by the editor of The Post and Email to clean up the corruption in Monroe County.

    I made sure to note that I am a voting resident of Tennessee.
    Mrs. Rondeau replies: Great. If your neighbors can do the same and multiply the effort, we might have a chance.
