Governor Lee Visits Jackson County

Governor Bill Lee was in Gainesboro last Wednesday, to meet with local leaders. The Governor requested the attendees to give a presentation on their vision and efforts going on in Gainesboro and Jackson County. Loui Silvestri and Diana Mandli shared with Governor Lee why they were reopening their restaurant, The Bull & Thistle, in late November early December.

Chamber President Jordan Hunter proposed his vision of Gainesboro and the proposed use of the $100,000 dollar Façade Grant that was received from the TNECD earlier in October.
