It’s that time of year again! Time to vote for the 2019 Pork of the Year. Here are your options:

  • $700,000 of a pledged $2 million in federal and state taxpayer money was spent to build a visitor center at Reelfoot Lake, only to ultimately be torn down because it didn’t meet earthquake requirements.
  • Last year Nashville was forced to withdraw nearly $1.5 million directly from Metro School’s budget—without warning—to cover the cost of the TIF program, which gives tax dollars to corporations in the city.
  • Richard Siegel Soccer Complex in Murfreesboro is losing $142,000 each year, but will undergo an estimated $14.5 million renovation at the expense of taxpayers in hopes of making it profitable. Even by the government’s inflated and likely incorrect projections, the complex won’t break even on this project for over 100 years.
  • Graceland, one of the most notable landmarks in the city of Memphis, threatened to “move” if Memphis didn’t give it $100 million in tax incentives.
