Record of Candidates' Votes on Leasing Rose Park to Belmont

Here is how some of the candidates running for Metro offices in August voted on last night's Rose Park/Belmont Lease Agreement bill, which was up for the first of three readings:

Voting for passage of the resolution approving the agreement to lease Rose Park (public) to Belmont Athletics (private)

Buck Dozier (Mayoral candidate)
Diane Neighbors (Vice Mayoral candidate)
David Briley (Mayoral candidate)
J.B. Loring (at-Large candidate)
Charlie Tygard (at-Large candidate)

Voting against approval

Carolyn Baldwin Tucker (Vice Mayoral candidate)
John Summers (at-Large candidate)
Ronnie Greer (at-Large candidate)

There could be reasons for voting for this bill besides supporting Belmont against the Edgehill neighborhood, so it is hard to read reasons into first reading votes. More reliable judgments may be formed after the second reading vote, which will follow the Public Hearing and the committee process.

If you would like to know how the incumbent council member representing your district voted, let me know and I'll pass the info along.
