But since Rick Tanner has made his support public, he says he's gotten threatening letters and phone calls.
Well, for Whitfield County and the City of Dalton, It is a politically turbulent topic -- Tanner tells me liquor by the drink hasn't been on the ballot in the last three years -- and the last two times -- It was shot down.Now, a city version AND a county version will hit the ballots this November -- and Tanner says his support has sparked a pretty threatening response.Rick Tanner has served as the director of the Northwest Trade and Convention Center for the last three years.He supports allowing people to buy liquor on Sundays at 12:30 in the afternoon, until midnight, at restaurants and hotels.Tanner believes it will help the trade center become self sufficient -- and bring more money into the county.But there are those who don't like his opinion.Tanner says, "I'm getting anonymous phone calls and letters from people that are very upset about my position and the position of the trade center with regard to Sunday sales."Tanner says, this is just one of four anonymous letters he received.The letter and envelope has no signature or return address.Tanner says, it's not as bad as the half dozen phone calls -- telling him to "watch his back".

That was followed by the resignation of Northwest Georgia Trade and Convention Center director Rick Tanner.

Rick Tanner quit his job at the trade center, but he did so at the insistence of center's supervisory board, which appeared ready to fire him.If there was a specific transgression that earned the board's ire, everyone is remaining quiet about it.
Whatever the reason, it was a shocking fall from grace for Tanner, who came here four years ago and initially enjoyed the solid backing of most board members.Whatever the final straw was, Tanner's relationship with his bosses had obviously eroded in recent months.Board members who at one time seemed to support him without question were increasingly barraging him with questions.And that's just at the public meetings.Imagine the private conversations!
Tanner has his share of critics and deservedly so.Anyone who insists on mucking around in local politics is going to get burned.Sometimes it's best to just shut up and do your job.On the other hand, Tanner was not afraid to to take the public body shots when it came to making a controversial move.While board members stayed safely in the background, Tanner was bold in his advocacy on issues like expanded alcohol sales and the need for a hotel to be built next to the trade center.
...
Tanner could have learned something from the Chamber's Woodward, who in his nearly nine years on the job was a textbook example of a cautious, connected politically attuned mover and shaker.
