In a letter to Governor-Elect Bill Lee delivered on the eve of his inauguration, Dale Walker, President of the conservative Tennessee Pastors Network, has expressed “concerns” about recent appointees to the Lee Administration.
The letter notes that Walker “requested a meeting with the Governor-elect weeks ago and was informed he didn’t have time to meet with concerned Pastors. Apparently, Bill Lee has been so busy meeting with these liberals he couldn’t meet with conservative Bible-Believing Pastors that stood for electing what we thought was a conservative Governor.”
Walker says that there are many qualified Tennessee conservatives that Bill Lee could have appointed to top positions in his Administration that have been intentionally overlooked in order to promote the liberal Democrats and moderate Republicans he has named instead.
“The Tennessee Pastors Network met with Knoxville Mayor Rogero regarding a scripture verse that had been removed at the Knoxville Police Department,” Walker said. “She was completely tone deaf to the importance of Biblical values in our culture. I cannot explain why Bill Lee would approve hiring someone from the top of her ultra-liberal Administration while he purports to be a conservative Christian leader!”
Tennessee Pastors Network is again requesting a meeting with the new Governor to express the concerns of Pastors across the state who feel that he has deceived them.
Walker points out that many conservatives who helped elect Bill Lee are not attending the Inaugural events because of the unexpected liberal tilt of his Administration. “We are praying for him,” Walker said, “and remain hopeful he will quickly return to the principles and issues he talked about while seeking our support rather than continuing to follow the bad advice of those who now have his ear as Governor.”
