Commissioner can’t resist jumping into fun

Mark Ezell (right), commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development, may be overmatched by this youngster during a water battle at the new splash pad at Eiffel Tower Park. Ezell was in Paris Friday to greet local officials Kim Foster, Paris city manager, and Travis McLeese, Paris-Henry County Chamber of Commerce executive director. While here, Ezell visited the new attraction, which opened just a couple of weeks ago. “This just goes to show how much fun this splash park really is,” said McLeese. “We looked up and he was out there in slacks and a button-down playing with some local kids. We are fortunate to have someone with his personality and energy leading our tourism efforts.”
