Christmas Greeting

December 23, 2013


It may seem that I am forever speaking about our local problems with government and its finances. And I must admit that I spend a lot of time researching these facts and figures. Recently I went to several parties and wore my favorite red Christmas tie, “Bah Humbug”.



Also hanging on my office door is a painting of me “The Grinch” done by my daughter. The likeness is remarkable.


However I am forever optimistic and believe that we are turning a corner here in Memphis, Shelby County and the Country. The problems have become so obvious that reasonable people are demanding common sense solutions. We must live within our means and balance the budget. The solutions will be painful but they are necessary.

Therefore during this season, let me thank you for all your support of and its mission of open and fiscally responsible government. I look forward to this holy season and wish all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    Joe, thank YOU for being a tenacious, responsible “citizen watchdog” for the people of Memphis. Ever since TV stations were bought up by corporations, we have seen a decline in investigative reporting, and it is up to citizens like yourself to keep politicians on the hook and accountable. I don’t agree with EVERYTHING you say, but that’s OK! 🙂 Keep doing what you are doing, and thanks. Merry Christmas to you!
