I voted for the man twice because I really believed that he wants to be "the neighborhoods Mayor."
How troubling it is to know that "the neighborhoods Mayor" is pawning his "State of Metro" not to neighbors at a reasonable price ("free" sounds pretty reasonable to me), but to the Nashville Chamber of Commerce.
- $85.00 charged to any neighbor not a member of the Chamber.
- $35.00 charged to Chamber members, who can probably afford $85.00.
- Worst of all, free to Metro Council members! I assume this is to remove any disincentive to our Council members, whom the Chamber probably intends to lobby; free breakfast and access to the "State of Metro" ... sounds like the political favors have already started, Ethics Committee be damned.
This affair has got me wondering just how much neighborhoods actually matter in the current pecking order of the "State of Metro."
