Tennessee Governors To Discuss Civility In Government

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Gov. Bill Haslam, along with former Tennessee governors Phil Bredesen and Don Sundquist, will headline a public forum on civility and effective governance in Knoxville.

The event Thursday is sponsored by the Tennessee Bar Association, the University of Tennessee Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy, the University of Tennessee College of Law and the First Amendment Center.

Memphis lawyer Bill Haltom will moderate the discussion at the Toyota Auditorium of the Baker Center. He is currently writing a book on civility and politics using Baker as the exemplar.

Baker was Tennessee's first popularly elected Republican senator and became known as the "Great Conciliator" for his ability to bring together lawmakers to resolve pressing issues.
