Know Who Your Friends Are

The TIF/PILOT audit that is resulting in a the News Sentinel receiving a past due bill has been a contract with a firm TMA in Mt. Juliet, TN. The Knox County contract was signed in December last year. Commissioner Scott Moore started working on the idea of a TIF/PILOT audit six months before that.

He was talking with the representative yesterday about the audit and the auditor said, well I have been told that you are no longer a Commissioner. So I don't know what information that I can give you. Commissioner Moore said well, I am a Knox County citizen. Who told you that you shouldn't be talking to me? The auditor named two countywide elected officials. (Brian's Blog is embargoing the identities until a later date.)

Commissioner Moore will get the answers that he wants on Monday when the County Commission meets. He can and likely will address the auditor from the public podium during the Commission meeting.

I feel as if Scott Moore would make a better activist then he would a commishioner. He went to court and lost. He can spend thousands in legal fees and probably lose again or he can take his insider knowledge and use it to good use.
The clarion bell was wrung load and clear...the voters stated they did not want anything to do with him in the primary...he disgraced his party and his co-workers

Actually, I think the concept of Scott Moore the citizen activist is quite funny. I also suspect that most of Knox County would feel the same way.
