Measure to restore Tourism funding fails

Squires continue search for budget cuts

The Wilson Post

Wilson County Commission once again voted down funding for the Convention & Visitors Bureau during Monday nights meeting, and squires continued looking for opportunities to cut the countys budget.

A resolution presented by District 11 Commissioner Jim Bradshaw would have restored funding to the bureau in-full, which squires cut during the Aug. 27 meeting, saving $204,000. However, squires voted against the resolution Monday night 16-7 with little discussion.

District 17 Commissioner Gary Keith opposed the resolution based on the commissions rules of order since it had not been considered by the Budget Committee. County Attorney Mike Jennings said the resolution was a motion to amend the budget and said it didnt violate any rules.

However, Bradshaw noted he wanted to bring it to the Budget Committee during its meeting on Sept. 7, but said members did not allow him to present the resolution. The committee did not make any cuts during that meeting, but charged each departments committee with cutting budgets.

Sheriff Terry Ashe to resign Sept. 30

Will serve as Tennessee Sheriffs' Association Executive Director

The Wilson Post

Wilson County Sheriff Terry Ashe announced Tuesday afternoon he would be stepping down from that position after 30 years to serve as the Executive Director of the Tennessee Sheriffs Association.

Ashe and TSA President and Putnam County Sheriff David Andrews and outgoing President and Williamson County Sheriff Jeff Long made the announcement in a press conference held at the TSAs office in Lebanon.

Its a sad time to announce to people that I love that I wont be their Sheriff anymore, Ashe said. This is probably the hardest decision Ive ever made as a career decision.

The TSA is a non-profit organization founded by sheriffs statewide in 1971 to promote better and more effective law enforcement. Ashe said the organization has a huge impact on the state and has supported many pieces of legislation for tougher penalties for child sex offenders, repeated DUI offenders and more.
