Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam came to Memphis on Monday, May 23, to celebrate what's right with local government.
Rotary Club of Memphis East presented its 8th annual Bobby Dunavant Public Servant Awards to Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich and Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell.
The new governor praised the mayor and DA for being people of integrity.
"In truth, elected or appointed government officials have all kinds of choices to make once they're in office from who they hire to how they spend the taxpayers' money," he said. "No matter how many laws we pass or oversight we put into place, honesty makes all the difference."
