How Poor Are Our Legislators: Tammy L. Irons

Tammy Irons is state senator for District 1 that includes both Lauderdale and Colbert Counties. Could Senator Irons afford to forfeit 15% of her legislative pay?

* Irons has been an attorney since 1989. She is the owner of Irons Law Firm and has a well established practice.

* Irons is the former law partner of Bob Hill, a one-time state representative. Before her election, she should have had no misconceptions concerning what her salary covered or did not cover.

* Irons is a paid lobbyist for the University of North Alabama.

* Irons is married to a formerly successful football coach and has no children.

Would the loss of 15% of her legislative salary hurt Sen. Tammy Irons. Again, readers, it's your call.

We've received several e-mails concerning the Sweetwater episode of Paranormal State--specifically asking for either affirmation or rebuttal of information concerning Gen. John Brahan that was included in the program. We have not as yet viewed this show, but will in the near future and offer documented information at that time.

The episode has generated several comments on Tennessee Valley Talks, with one new poster referring to information previously published in this blog. We encourage this Sweetwater volunteer to contact us concerning any data published here that she feels is in error. We're sure that our fellow blogger O.B. would make the same offer.
