Looks like Michael “Big Sexy” Grider is back doing the spin releases after whatever the heck that was that went out earlier this week.
Anyhoo, ol' Grider just now issued his own note, touting his boss's presence Monday at a ribbon cutting. Heh.
It says Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett, Tennessee Department of Veterans Affairs Assistant Commissioner Donald Smith; folks from the Knox County Veterans Service Office and Rolling Thunder Tennessee Chapter (Grider spelled “Tennessee” wrong in the release by the way) and some “other public officials and members of the public” that apparently weren't important enough to be named will attend the event at 9 a.m. Monday at the Knox Central Building on 1000 N. Central Avenue.
(That was a mouthful.)
So, what's going on? Good question. I think all those aforementioned and not always named people will celebrate the opening of a new Veterans Service Office. They'll also “make an announcement about flying the POW/MIA flag at county facilities,” according to the spin release, which doesn't say what the new policy will be, although it can't be all that bad because they're inviting the media.
The public is invited to this shin dig and there will be an open house and some light refreshments.
