Town Hall Meeting

Last night I sketched a bit while listening to pros and cons on proposal of new convention center in Nashville where there are already three convention centers.

At a time when the budgets, staff and hours for public education, public libraries and community centers are being severely slashed, the mayor has tried to send through a 600 million dollar convention center project that does not include a required hotel which would add at least an additional 300 million.

Fortunately, a local attorney started a citizens group to (hopefully) force a referendum through which the citizens will have the opportunity to approve or disapprove this project.
