Tygard's Criticism of Page Generates District 16 Listserv Reaction over the Weekend

Here are some District 16 listserv comments from Anna Page's constituents in response to Charlie Tygard's criticism of her:

COUNCILMAN TYGARD - - ANY PERSONAL ATTACKS ON ANNA PAGE, OUR 16TH DISTRICT COUNCILMEMBER ARE MOST UNPROFESSIONAL. NEGATIVE COMMENTS TOWARD YOUR FELLOW COUNCIL MEMBERS IS NOT GOOD. WE LOOK TO ALL OUR COUNCIL FOR LEADERSHIP. THIS IS MOST DISAPPOINTING. EVERYONE IN OUR DISTRICT DOES NOT AGREE ON EVERY ISSUE, BUT OUR COUNCIL LADY IS ALWAYS WILLING TO LISTEN TO US AND HELP US FIND A BALANCE.

Our Council Lady, Ms. Page gives us a voice!!! It's not about "ONE" sign. It's about the spread of such throughout our neighborhoods that we are against.

How dare you, Mr. Tygard, attack my council person, for doing her job, representing the majority of her district on an issue that is clearly, divisive, between neighborhood and business. She has chosen to vote for the very raucous neighborhood crowd over the paid for business group.Hmmmm. Who has a hand in your pocket? OOOPS my bad, I didn't mean to insinuate that some SIGN COMPANY owner may have more influence with you than your constituents.

Mr. Charlie Tygard,Words cannot express how disappointed I am over your email to our Council Lady of the 16th District, Anna Page. Insults and personal attacks to another, especially within the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County/Metro Council, are nothing short of being disrespectful and immature. (possibly characteristics you identify with).

You totally strayed from the core of your legislative responsibilties, (issues and concerns), into an area of lost emotions, and improper expression. When you insult our Council Lady, you in turn insult all of us in her District. You are an embarrassment to Metro Council. You owe apologies to Council Lady Page, Metro Council and the entire 16th District for such an unnecessary personal attack regarding a legislative concern via e-mail.

Please request a Sabbatical for yourself, and then return Refreshed.
