The Chattanooga Tea Party Newsletter January 16, 2011
No doubt you have been reading and hearing about the decision by Mayor Littlefield and the Chattanooga City Council to charge Chattanooga police officers a fee to take home their police car. While there have been many reports about this matter, we have arranged for you to hear directly from those most affected by this controversial and unpopular decision — the police officers themselves.
Phil Grubb, President of the International Brotherhood of Police Officers Local 673, will be our guest speaker at the Chattanooga Tea Party’s January monthly meeting Thursday, January 20, at 7 p.m.
Mr. Grubb will address the controversial police car take home issue and other Chattanooga and Hamilton County law enforcement officer concerns. IBPO Local 673 represents more than 260 city and county law enforcement officers. Craig Joel, President of the Rock City (Chattanooga) Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police, has also been invited.
The meeting will take place at the Home Builder’s Association of Southern Tennessee, 3221 Harrison Pike (off Access Road, just south of the Highway 153-Amnicola Highway intersection). (Click here for a map)
There will be an opportunity to ask questions of Mr. Grubb and other police officers who are in attendance.
Thanks for your continued interest and support of The Chattanooga Tea Party. We value your support, friendship and participation as we together seek to fulfill the mission of our organization.
Promoting Liberty & Restoring Values,
