    What's next for the transit referendum?
    February 1, 2018 As Nashville digests yesterday's news about the Mayor, many people are asking what it might mean for the transit referendum. The Council is set to vote on our third and final reading on February 6.

Where to start?

227 15th Avenue North

    Where to start?
    January 31, 2018 This evening, Mayor Barry acknowledged publicly that she had an extramarital affair with her now former security detail leader. It's shocking news. As an At-Large member of the Metro Council, I think it's my job to communicate the feelings of the county as I understand them.

The $5.4B is for new rail AND bus capital costs

227 15th Avenue North

    The $5.4B is for new rail AND bus capital costs
    January 25, 2018 This week, I have been trying to clean up some discrepancies and debates that are going on about the proposed transit plan. My earlier posts are here and here. One argument people are having is about whether the $5.4 billion listed in the referendum language refers to light rail capital costs only, or to light rail AND bus capital costs.

Getting to the bottom of the debate over $5.4B versus $8.9B

227 15th Avenue North

    Getting to the bottom of the debate over $5.4B versus $8.9B
    January 24, 2018 There has been some debate about whether the upcoming transit referendum language should include just the capital cost of the transit plan in 2017 dollars ($5,354,000,000) or also include additional information. In particular, one Council member has suggested adding language to the referendum stating that the "total cost for the transit system" is $8,951,062,000.

    Transit thoughts - 1/23/18
    January 23, 2018 Last August, I put out a list of questions I would need answered in order to vote to put the transit initiative on the May 1 ballot. The proposed Transit Improvement Program answered all of these questions and more. So, I am voting to put the referendum on the ballot.

STR transparency…

227 15th Avenue North

    STR transparency...
    January 21, 2018 In the last few hours, I started getting this form email urging, for the first time, that Council members abstain on Bill -608. To be clear, it is very likely that any form email that we get opposing Bill -608 is drafted and spread primarily by industry lobbyists.

Nashville General Hospital – 1/14/18 thoughts

    Nashville General Hospital - 1/14/18 thoughts
    January 14, 2018 Here are my Nov. 29, 2017 thoughts about NGH. My main thought then was that there were too many people with firm, preconceived ideas about the hospital's future and not enough working together. I said: There are too many chefs in the kitchen.
