AFP Hosts Infrastructure Event Tonight with Congressman Mark Green, AFP President Tim Phillips

May 24, 2021 by AFP

NASHVILLE, TN – Americans for Prosperity-Tennessee (AFP-TN) today is hosting an “End Washington Waste” event with U.S. Representative Mark Green and AFP President Tim Phillips today at 6:00 PM.

The event is part of AFP’s full-scale national grassroots mobilization campaign that includes a significant seven-figure paid media effort including targeted direct mail and layered digital ads, planned rallies and townhalls, and phone banks and door-to-door canvassing.

AFP-TN State Director Tori Venable issued the following statement:

“Pork is good food but bad policy. Yet, this is what Tennesseans are getting with this so-called ‘infrastructure’ proposal that spends five percent of funds on roads and bridges and is paid for by some of the largest tax hikes in history.

“Rather than increasing taxes and spending billions of dollars on a partisan wish list that won’t improve our infrastructure needs, we need to unleash private investment and overhaul our regulatory system that will make it easier to build infrastructure in a timely and efficient manner. We’re excited to have Congressman Green join us as we talk with and hear from fellow Tennesseans about why this unsustainable spending spree from Washington needs to end.”

WHAT: End Washington Waste Event

WHERE: Bold Patriot Brewing Company
410 39th Ave N, Nashville, TN 37209

WHEN: May 24th
6:00-8:00 p.m.

Background on AFP’s Campaign:
