City of Sevierville Board of Mayor and Aldermen, left to right: Alderman Barry Gibbs, Vice Mayor Dale Carr, Alderman Travis McCroskey, Mayor Bryan C. Atchley, Alderman Jerry Loveday and Alderman Claude Ownby.
I opened my email this morning and found the following e-mail from one of our Sevierville City Aldermen/Commissioners: I never imagined I would get the attention of any of our City's leaders with my article. I'd simply hoped to make Tennessee residents aware of an injustice. God is good!
Danielle and Joseph – Yesterday, 9-22-09 I read Wyatt’s story in the Mt Press, Sunday issue. As a “Pro-Life” Christian, I have never considered issues raised by recognition of life by law. As a result of the same, I have just composed a letter to our State Senator, the Honorable Doug Overbey and with copy of the article will mail the same, today. I have encouraged Senator Overbey to author and sponsor the legislation you propose in
. For our knowledge, he is also a board member for: “A secret Tennessee Safe Place for Newborns of Tennessee”. I am in hopes that either you/I or both will have a response, forthcoming. Thank you for the honor and support of life which begins at conception. You are truly heroes and I champion your cause. May God pour out His richest blessings on you. Wyatt is proud of his mommie and daddy and so am I . In regard, respect and admiration, I am ……………Barry Gibbs – Sevierville City Alderman/Commissioner.
Let me stress again. I never imagined I would get the attention of any of our City's leaders with my article. Not only did I get his attention, he's pulling to have our Senator support me and even endorsed a letter on our behalf! I'd simply hoped to make Tennessee residents aware of an injustice and find places to leave my petition for signing. God is good!
