She doesn’t answer phone calls. She doesn’t reply to emails, and she’s now deleted her entire social media history, the most significant of which was on twitter @Delishia4D29. Newly elected Metro Council Member Delishia Porterfield has started off her new council career as possibly the least accessible, and certainly the least transparent member of Metro Council, and she’s only been seated a few weeks.
DETAILS: Mayor David Briley reveals plan to turn over management of Nashville’s parking spaces to a private company for $30 cash million up front, increase fines by 227%, extend enforcement times to 10 p.m., add Sunday enforcement, increase meter rates, and eliminate free parking for clean energy vehicles.
Metro Council Member Sheri Weiner is sponsoring a bill that would limit scooters to pre-set destinations, requiring you to only ride them to places with docks. That could mean no more free-roaming scooter rides, and a unknown policy for where docks are located, and for which businesses they are near.
Metro Council Member Jonathan Hall is being sued for theft of services & unjust enrichment, after he hired Logoz, Inc. to produce his campaign merchandise, and refuses to pay the bill. Hall is a member of the Budget & Finance committee on the council.
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.”
Thanks to Metro Council Member Freddie O’Connell, it’s no longer illegal to deliver beer in Nashville after 11 p.m.
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. It turns out ‘NEW’ Nashville is just as corrupt as ‘old’ Nashville.
