Wamp To Roll Out "Agenda Of Innovation"

Thursday, May 22, 2014

Third District Congressional candidate Weston Wamp said he plans to roll out an "agenda of innovation."

He said 12 leading Third District technology CEOs and innovators will appear with him Tuesday at 2 p.m. at the offices of Ambition, LLC., 800 Market St., second floor.

It will be streamed live online via Google Hangout.

Mr. Wamp said,“The federal government is inefficient, dysfunctional and now hostage to fraud. The politicians in Washington are too caught up in partisan bickering to look to the private sector for the

innovative solutions we need to attack the deficit and retrofit government for the 21st century.

"It’s time to deploy private sector innovation and solutions that can make government work. That’s the purpose for the “Agenda of Innovation.”

Roundtable participants include:

Jeff Averbeck, CEO, Airnet
Adam Boeselager, Co-Founder, Southtree
Sheila Boyington, Co-Founder and President, Thinking Media

Cell Phones And Roundabouts

I read the article written by Chris Morgan about the use of cell phones in vehicles and the Chattanooga Roundabouts.

Roy Exum: Two Wrongs Not Right

Scottie Mayfield is a delightful friend of mine but he’s the last guy in the world who should be aiming at anybody’s character.
