Herron applauds funding for port

State Senator Roy Herron (D-Dresden) expressed deep appreciation to Gov.Bill Haslam for including funding for the Northwest Tennessee Port and Industrial Park in this year’s budget.

“In every one of the several conversations we’ve had about the Port and Industrial Park, Governor Haslam has understood the enormous need, particularly with Goodyear closing,” Herron said. 

“His actions can bring the port to reality and can bring literally thousands of jobs to our region.”
