It’s that time of year when news outlets pick the person who they believe made the most impact. While nationally The Financial Times listed Leftist George Soros as Person of the Year for being a “standard bearer for liberal democracy,” one of Tennessee’s own was recognized by a publication in the Volunteer State.
Congressman-elect Mark Green was named Person of the Year by Clarksville’s main newspaper not only because he is a veteran, physician, and businessman, but ultimately because he is the first congressman from Clarksville in 135 years.
Said Green about being chosen, “I’m very humbled to be selected by The Leaf-Chronicle for this honor. This entire community has just taken care of me and my family, including during times when I was away for combat deployments. The support from the local schools and churches is something we have never experienced anywhere else, and it is my intention to return the favor for Clarksville, represent it well and defend its interests, including Fort Campbell.”
