Dear Readers: Blount Today to close
“While he was out joining clubs, I was at Blount Memorial Hospital. I would go in at 5 in the morning and come home at 6 at night. I ran a busy department of pathology,” he said. “There are different ways to serve the community. You can do ‘Ra-rah-rah’ things or work hard to improve the health of this community.”
You have got to be kidding me!!! Dr. Finney criticizes Repesentative Overbey for his public service in the community? For those that don't know Doug Overbey here's the short list: He has volunteeered and was the Board Chairman for the United Way of Blount County for many years, an agency that only to serves 17% of the population of Blount County. Board member of the Childrens Advocacy Center that has protected thousands of abused children in Blount County, Founding Board member of the Secret Safe Place for Children of Blount County. Other organizations included are Kiwanis, Relay For Life.
OK, Let's pretend it not a political race. Let's pretend that Dr. Finney was just upset or intimidated with at Rep. Overbey's presence or just plain made the statement to defend himself or just goofed. WHY WOULD ANYONE THINK OF SUCH. Just thinking..........
