Tonight at the knoxville expo center I will be attending a meet and greet with several local and state aspiring political candidates, including those with aspirations for governor.
Please take note of what we need in Tennessee. We need to enter the 21st century and catch up and take over the lead among states in energy efficiency and alternative energy. We need to establish state rebates for solar, wind and other types of alternate energy installations. We need to invest in re-charge stations for electric vehicles. We need to offer rebates for home owners and home builders to strive for higher efficiency homes, rebates on retrofits for existing homes.
We need to continue to bring in new business. To do so we need to make this an attractive state to operate in. Not just appearances, but financially and technologically. We need to make sure there are affordable options for land lines, internet, satellite and other forms of communications. We need to focus on our parks and land, to keep it clean, utilizing volunteers to the fullest.
We need above all else to focus on keep corporations here, and not losing them to other countries. We need to increase restrictions on education to help the children be prepared in a technological manner. We need to prioritize our schools and make sure they have the money to operate, and the teachers are paid comparable salaries with the rest of the country.
Are any of you candidates experienced enough to do this?
