Voting Open for Beacon Center’s Pork of the Year Event

Visit www.beamanauto.com

Voting is open for the Beacon Center of Tennessee’s Pork of the Year event for 2017.

The annual event allows the people of Tennessee to choose the biggest waste of taxpayer dollars from a short list of candidates “who have done the most egregious things with taxpayer money,” according to the Beacon Center’s website.

The Beacon Center is a Nashville-based think tank that promotes the free market.

The 2016 Pork of the Year winner was the University of Tennessee’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion for its promotion, at taxpayer expense, of gender neutral pronouns such as “ze” and “zir,” and its discouragement of Christmas-themed holiday parties.

This year’s choices include the Jobs 4 TN program, the Opryland Waterpark, the state’s industrial machinery tax credit, and former Rutherford County Sheriff Robert Arnold profiting off inmates through his conspiracy to sell electronic cigarettes.

For a detailed description of these candidates and to vote, go to beacontn.org/pork-of-the-year-voting.

    Add to the Pork list bike lanes in Hermitage. The only people using the bike lanes are the homeless and their stolen Kroger buggies.
