JD Alexander cancels meeting after making universities scurry

in Uncategorized by

Fortunately, JD Alexander only has 58 days left to torture the rest of us. Because this is a mean move:

University officials across the state gave up their vacations, worked overtime and generally threw themselves into fulfilling a massive data request from state Sen. JD Alexander last month.

He needed the information fast he said because his Senate Budget Committee wanted time to analyze it before a Jan. 13 meeting.

The answers, delivered on time last week, covered 5,000 pages.

And Alexander’s reponse: “Nevermind.”

The meeting set for Friday the 13th has been cancelled.
