Fitzhugh Statement on Morgan Retirement, Haslam Higher-Ed Restructuring Plan

Press release from House Minority Leader Craig Fitzhugh, D-Ripley, Jan. 7, 2016:

House Democratic Leader Craig Fitzhugh released the following statement on the retirement of John Morgan as Chancellor of the Tennessee Board of Regents:

“For 30 years, John Morgan served this state with distinction. From his time as a research assistant for the fiscal review committee to his extraordinary tenure as Comptroller of the Treasury & Deputy Governor to his service as Chancellor of the Board of Regents–we are a better state because of this public servant. His leadership and vast knowledge of state government will be sorely missed, especially as we consider the questionable restructuring of higher education in Tennessee.

On a personal note, I wish John and his wife Donna the very best as they start this new chapter. We are truly grateful for what they both contributed to this state.”
