It’s back – the vote is TONIGHT to round up your NES bill without asking:
“The Metropolitan Council hereby goes on record as formally requesting NES to implement a customer-remove Round-Up donation program, such that all ratepayers will be enrolled in the program automatically, creating a reasonable and sustainable source of revenue for its low-income weatherization program.”
Arnold Hayes says Metro Council member Russ Pulley ask inappropriate question(s) during his Oversight Interview. Metro Council members were caught in a hot-mic moment with the Vice Mayor discussing damage control of the incident. Here’s the letter that Hayes wrote to Metro Council, in response to the incident, where Pulley discounted that racism exists in the criminal justice system, and suggested Hayes never experienced any racial profiling in his past.
CM Hurt: I get that, but I’m saying in terms of us trying to.. damage control, knowing that this has come out, what kind of damage control are we going to exercise in this, and how do we move forward as we move on to the next phase.
“Some African American men have had problems with police force, and police authority, but that’s because of how their upbringing was, and the environment they’re in.”

All Metro Council member Russ Pulley had to do was tell his constituent ‘NO’, he wouldn’t help her break the law. Instead, he conspired with codes to issue her an illegal permit to have a business with customers coming to her home – a privilege denied to every other Nashvillian.

The council will vote on the resolution Wednesday night.
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. The citizens of Nashville have defeated amendment 5 during today’s election.
Mayor David Briley participated In a town hall event Tuesday night at The Temple, that was live tweeted by his staff to the official @MayorBriley account. Observers noticed that staffers from the Mayor’s office were copying and pasting pre-written answers to the public twitter feed for the world to see, while the Mayor’s in-person answers left many wondering why they didn’t seem to match up when it came to Community Oversight and the upcoming referendum. It was clever phrasing that many did not pick up on. The Mayor’s office today…
