Someone sent me the following allegedly from Niceley's Facebook page: Today I am calling for Ed Carter to step down as Executive Director of TWRA. I can no longer justify to my constituents voting any continuance for an Agency that lacks even the basic elements of discernment or discretion towards the people they serve. Recent incidents involving the TWRA including questionable arrests, undue force, as well as ham handed treatment of law abiding citizens who pay their salaries, leads me to conclude there is a serious management problem within the Agency. We have restructured its board and refused to reconfirm its chairman, still the Agency's customer service continues to deteriorate.

Niceley apparently is referring to an two recent articles in the Tennessean covering the arrest of a Nashville Councilman for failure to appear on a boating safety citation. Due to poor reporting, TWRA was tagged as the arresting agency. Only problem is, per usual for the good Senator (and sloppy reporting), he's again accusing the Agency of doing something they had NO part in. It was Metro who performed the arrest - TWRA officers had no knowledge about or hand in the enforcement action. Kinda like Niceley's claim that TWRA introduced coyotes into Tennessee. Something happened so TWRA must be at fault.

What is Niceley's problem with TWRA? Every time ya turn around he is trying to discredit or dissolve TWRA.

Maybe Niceley should be resigned by the voters of his district.

Because TWRA and hunters in Tn stand in his and his buddies way of opening up a deer farm in Tn.....

Ok Monty,
What do we, as outdoorsmen, need to do in order to show our support of Director Carter and who do we need to do this to?

We ain't had a drive in a while now, time for the members of tndeer to step up again.

I plan to e-mail my State Senator. It probably wouldn't be a bad idea to e-mail all State Senators and State Representatives in support of the leadership of the TWRA.

I have been talking with Mr. Nicely through facebook. Here is reply to me saying that he has a personal vendetta against the TWRA.

Frank Niceley
I'm sorry but you don't know me. Personal interest? I have no personal interests remotely connected with wildlife or fishing.

He is a dishonest typical politician in my opinion.

Frank Niceley has held a grudge against TWRA for several years. I will not get into the details conveyed to me, but in essence, he thinks he is special and that the wildlife laws should not apply to him, his friends, or on his property. He is still stinging from the defeat of his deer farming bill, and will take every opportunity to attack the agency.

I will be sure to contact my senator, I had a long talk with her when deer farming came up, and she was less than pleased when she found out Niceley had hoodwinked her into supporting it at first.

Thanks for the heads up!

I'd copy what the OP posted and ask him what is up with the two-faced then..... tell him to get his facts straight before he goes around spouting off.... there is already enough dishonest media BS being forcefed to the public these days.
