Evergreen should not get to keep tax dollars

Written by 

To the Editor:

Taxpayers should be infuriated about any tax dollars going to such an organization as the Evergreen Foundation. It is about time that county commissioners are taking a stand on behalf of the tax dollars as it relates to mental health, especially given this strange relationship with Evergreen.

How can our state and legislators allow this to continue? This is supposed to be about mental health, not financial gain.

Thanks to the Smoky Mountain Center for taking on this issue on behalf of the taxpayers and those in need of mental health services. How about a little help from our “elected” officials? Taking the word of the Evergreen director is not good enough, considering the relationship.

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
