Resident offers praise to police department

Many thanks to the Clarksville town officials who are supporting the police’s efforts to enforce the law for protection of our community. A special thank you to our Town Police Chief Matt Palmer for not turning a blind eye to the illegal activities in our community, specifically with reference to the three recent arrests at Theatair X.

As longtime residents of the town, this is the first time we can recall law enforcement pursing the unlawful activities that daily occur at this establishment. In order to ensure the continued progressive growth of our community, all citizens and businesses must be held accountable and made to follow the law. Communities function best with strong leaders.

The strength of great leaders is that they think months, often years, into the future. They think about what will positively help their community grow. Often great leaders decide to do not what would seem the popular option. Instead, they work towards the solution that is best for the community, even if a small (but very vocal) part of the community disagrees with them.  

We’d like to thank Clarksville officials for their strong leadership in this positive development and encourage them continue on their course. Your efforts will only make our community a better place to live for the months and years ahead! Thank you!!!!
