As a Favor to News Sentinel Editor Jack McElroy, Arnett Attacks Burchett Plan

This story about extending the additional week of vacation for county employees in today's Knoxville News Sentinel pits County Clerk Foster Arnett against Mayor Tim Burchett. You ask why would Arnett oppose an added benefit to assist morale for county employees that haven't been compensated because of the effort to reduce the county debt. Because Arnett served as Chairman of the News Sentinel Charity Board. So, when McElroy wanted another story to turn against Mayor Burchett. Arnett immediately obliged.

Now you know the rest of the story.

If we can reduce the number of hours worked by all County employees by 2% without any reduction of service, then we have at least 2% too many employees.

If Arnett wants to save money like he claims, then why has he spent so many tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars on security watch his own employees? He has no neck. He looks like a turtle.
