John Tanner has some words for SteFi and his newfound interest in jobs at the Milan Arsenal…
Stolen in it’s entirety from JR Lind:
“I want to thank Mr. Fincher for his newfound concern for saving jobs at the Milan Arsenal, where we have been fighting for years to keep good-paying jobs for West Tennesseans. I appreciate hearing from him for the first time on this or any other issue impacting Tennessee families in the 22 years that I have been honored to serve our district.
“We have long worked closely with Senators Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker and others in a bipartisan way – which I understand is not a mode of operation with which Mr. Fincher is comfortable – to protect the Milan Arsenal, keep West Tennesseans at work there and continue our area’s service to our national defense. I will continue to express our grave concerns to Army Secretary John McHugh, a former colleague of mine who happens to be a Republican.“We hope Mr. Fincher fully understands the impact of job losses for 600 Tennesseans who do not have millions of dollars in federal farm subsidies to fall back on.”
