Patricia Ann Pierce To Replace Robin Smith

12 07 2008

I have to agree with Progressive Nashville and Aunt B. about Tennessee GOP head Robin Smith.

You can read the letters she sent to Bredesen and Post Politics here.

If you aren’t familiar with what’s going on, Kleinheider breaks it down:

Patricia Ann Pierce of Harriman, director of the Opportunity Development Center at Vanderbilt University, was appointed today by Governor Phil Bredesen to serve on Tennessee’s Human Rights Commision. Pierce fills the expired term of Tennessee Republican Party Chair Robin Smith who was appointed to the Commission by Gov. Don Sundquist in 2002.

Smith’s position on the board had come under fire recently due to her actions as party chair. Under her watch, at least two communications were released out of her shop at the TNGOP which made national news for their incendiary nature.

We wish Patricia Ann Pierce well in her new appointment.
