Can You Wait Outside?

Did the county mayor get dissed at Bearden Elementary School?

Gov. Bill Haslam visited the school with an entourage in tow. The school system had invited County Mayor Tim Burchett to join the event. When Burchett arrived, however, he was told that the governor’s office didn’t want any additional people because it would “disrupt” class, so Burchett was asked to stay outside.

When contacted, Burchett said he is working with the school system on a solar initiative and that it was more important than any problem with protocol.
