    Following up on the community oversight bill on 1st reading...
    November 9, 2017 At our Council meeting on November 7, legislation for a police community oversight board was introduced on first reading. With all the attention earlier this week on soccer, I wanted to do a quick follow-up on this. I think there is a general consensus that a citizen's board of some kind is possible in Nashville.

    Soccer thoughts (11/3/2017 edition)
    November 3, 2017 Yesterday evening, the administration sent the Council a Substitute Resolution for the soccer stadium. See here. After digesting where the parties ended up, I don't think I can vote for it. I do appreciate that many of my requested changes were made.

    Transit thoughts (10/28/17 edition)
    October 28, 2017 The Mayor outlined her transit plan on October 17, 2017. So far, only high level summary bullet point, pictograph, and animated information is available about the plan. I am not expecting to see the detailed financial assumptions and modeling behind the plan until December.

    Unfunded OPEB liability to cross $3B mark this year
    October 9, 2017 I have written before about Metro's pension and OPEB (Other Post-Employment Benefits - e.g. health insurance) liability. This is brief update. Metro's Finance Director gave the Council an update about these liabilities today. The pension fund is in good shape with more than 98% of the pension liability funded.

    Soccer thoughts (October 8 edition)
    October 8, 2017 Let me start by saying that soccer is exciting. It is the most popular sport on the planet. I would love to see Nashville get a top-level soccer franchise. That said, voters elected the Council to be good stewards of public resources.
