Governor Bill Lee to be guest speaker at 1st Tuesday January 7th

Governor Bill Lee will be the guest speaker at 1st Tuesday on January 7th. I do not know if there are still tickets available, but if there are they will probably not last. If you are interested in attending this luncheon, I would attempt to purchase now. I bought my ticket last night and there were still tickets available. Don't expect to just show up and pay at the door for this event.

Given the recent decision of Gov. Lee to approve refugee resettlement in Tennessee, one can expect some tension in the room and sharp questions. One can also expect Governor Lee to lay out his legislative agenda for the coming year.  Most likely there will be discussion of continuing education reform and the status of vouchers, criminal justice reform, the Medicaid block grant proposal, and questions about the $732 million in unspent funds for needy families Tennessee is sitting on.

First Tuesday has been in existence for 35 years. I have been attending for about the last ten years and have had the privilege of hearing Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, Senator Rand Paul, both Tennessee senators, several of Tennessee's U. S. Congressmen, former Governor Bill Haslam, Kentucky Governor Matt Bivens,  candidates for office, office holders, mayors, authors, and other movers and shakers.

Membership is only $25 and luncheon tickets are only $20 for members.  To purchase tickets or for more information follow this link.
