There is a Metro Council Meeting tonight at 6:00 pm… An agenda has been provided, and you can watch the meeting live via channel 3 or stream live on your electronic devices. Also, please do not respond to this email... You can reach me at [email protected]
There's a public hearing, and we are meeting in person for the first time since March. You can join us, we'll be at the Music City Center.
Over the past week or so, I had the opportunity to unplug and have a stay-cation... This was extremely needed and helpful. The meeting tonight will be the first meeting of my second year to serve as your Council Member. During my time away, I had a chance to reflect on the year, and we have made some great strides to address some of our campaign key issues... We set out to add much-needed infrastructure investments: As you look around, we have new pavement, streetlights, crosswalks, and added more sidewalks. Thank you for your help and for sharing areas that could use these upgrades. We wanted to Decrease Crime and Increase Transparency... I know crime still happens in our communities, but our precinct Commanders see a decrease in violent offenses. We also wanted to mitigate dumping... This is a work in progress. My goal is to provide healthy environments in our communities. I have begun this process to slow the dumping and, with your help, continue to work towards our goal! Lastly, we wanted to have smart growth and unified communities... I know that the COVID-19 pandemic has paused our meetings, but we began this term with transparency and communication regarding the growth we would like to see in our neighborhoods. As the city continues to boom, we will play a huge role, and as development comes I am committed to growth that works for you and your neighbors.
You are invited to the Nashville North Collaborative's Fall Family Drive-In and Get Out The Vote Rally on October 31st at Ted Rhoades Soccer Fields inMetro Center.
