What part of ‘no’ doesn’t the Metro Council understand? You can’t have 3 terms!

What part of ‘no’ doesn’t the Metro Council understand? Surely their time could be better spent with priorities for the city, instead of asking for their term limit to be expanded – for the 7th time since citizens restricted them.

Jon Sewell reflects on Nashville’s Mayoral race with a Limerick

He was the Mayor we all deserved. He was pro-marijuana, legalization of drugs and prostitution (it’s your body, and we can use the tax income on both businesses, right?). He wanted to house the homeless, use art work for traffic calming strategies, no more corporate welfare, more money for small businesses, and even have a max wage cap for CEO’s based on how much they paid their employees. It was a grand dream. And all but 92 of you fucked it up. So now all you get is this limerick…

Metro Council Candidate Sylvester Armor: Real Estate License Suspended, Ignoring Garnishments for 25K+

Sylvester Armor is running for the hotly contested District 1 City Council seat in Nashville – an election that happens this Thursday (05/24).
