    Updated FAQs about proposed 50 cent rate correction
    June 10, 2018 As we get into the last few weeks of the Metro budget process, I have updated my frequently asked question list. You can see it here. Also, for a longer discussion of the budget, check out the Nashville Sounding Board interview that Council member Tanaka Vercher and I gave a few days ago.

I’m going to keep doing my job

346 21st Avenue North

    I'm going to keep doing my job
    June 3, 2018 With David Briley's win on May 24, he has formally resigned as Vice Mayor. The vacancy will be filled in the scheduled August 2, 2018 election (perhaps followed by a runoff five weeks after that). I want to thank the many supporters who have encouraged me to run for Vice Mayor.

What was in the soccer stadium bond resolution?

346 21st Avenue North

    What was in the soccer stadium bond resolution?
    May 31, 2018 It looks like the Council has a new ordinance to consider on first reading next week that is aimed at removing the 10 acres of development from the soccer stadium deal. When thinking about this latest effort to remove the 10 acres, I think it is worth reviewing what the Council actually passed last year.

What is the opposite of land banking?

346 21st Avenue North

    What is the opposite of land banking?
    May 21, 2018 The purpose of a land bank is to save surplus real estate to be available for future affordable housing developments. Since the cost of land in Nashville is what makes affordability difficult, land banking is an important tool for affordable housing.

Out of step with historic practice

346 21st Avenue North

    Out of step with historic practice
    May 18, 2018 Metro handled its property tax rates in a historically unusual way last year. Most of the time when Metro has done a periodic property value reassessment (which is required to be revenue neutral), Metro has simultaneously raised the property tax rate.

um…about the budget…

227 15th Avenue North

    um...about the budget...
    May 11, 2018 The proposed FY19 Metro budget has been out for ten days now...and it's not good...and this is just the first year of a multi-year problem. The quick top line summary is that the proposed budget would renege on legislation passed last June for employee cost of living increases and gives our schools only $5 million of the approximately $45 million that MNPS asked for.

    May 5, 2018 People in Nashville are understandably angry about having a tight budget in boom times. But this storm has been brewing for a while. During the 2015 election season, one of the things that voters all around the county wanted to talk about most was "how come I've got problems in my part of town and we spend all that money downtown?"
