Congratulations to the ‘Rankin Road Regressives’; you won another victory in your insipid battle to prevent employers from setting up shop in our county. Your continued resistance to making a future for our kids and grandkids is still on track.

Having listened to your multi-generational presentation of the classic “NIMBY” arguments I finally began to grasp the reasons why Jefferson County ranks so poorly for real job growth.

Your efforts beg the question; Why do we need a Chamber of Commerce when you obviously don’t know what the word “Commerce” actually means? You have transformed the group named ‘Industrial Development Board’ into an oxymoron.

Oh yes; please remove those sophomoric signs from your front yards as they distract those of us who must drive Rankin Rd. on our way to work in Hamblen county.
