Re: “As councilman, Jason Holleman has often sided with Mayor Karl Dean — but evidently not often enough

(Jason Holleman = John Summers Jr.) = delusion

Re: “As councilman, Jason Holleman has often sided with Mayor Karl Dean — but evidently not often enough

85% of the time isn't supporting the mayor? He's even carried the Mayor's water on a bill or two as the principle sponsor.

He was not opposed to the Convention Center per se, but rather was concerned that the funding model might strap Nashville tax payers with additional obligations. His work on the fairgrounds issue reflects his desire to do the BEST thing for the people of Nashville, not simply the most expedient thing.

We have GREAT council representation in Holleman who understands the complexity of issues and works to develop solutions that make sense. If you want a rubber-stamping, void-of-critical-thinking lapdog for the Mayor's minions, I guess you have your candidate--at least such appears to be her platform.

Lessee, Jeff Yarbro is a neighbor and friend whose campaign I supported. I was not aware of any "dirt" in that campaign, but maybe I missed something.

I'm supporting Jason Holleman in his re-election bid with enthusiasm. He has been a terrific council rep. I don't always agree with his conclusions (I supported the convention center, e.g.), but I very much appreciate his thoughtful, deliberate, intelligent approach to issues, and I appreciate his concern about the funding model for the center.

To those points--and a point of transparency made above--if he was trying so hard to initiate a conservation overlay, would he not wait till after the election? The folks on Park and Elkins are my neighbors. A number of them have asked for the conservation overlay. Some are opposed, but the point is that Jason was ASKED by the residents to introduce the matter.

Finally--and I went to the dictionary to make sure I understood the term--to say that John Summers is Jason's mentor is the product of a vivid imagination that has no basis in reality.

Re: “James Benning, one of America's finest filmmakers, trains his attention on the railroad in RR

Hey Wayne, we did reach out to the organizers of the train show, as well as 3 train enthusiasts groups in Middle TN, but heard nary a peep out of any of them.

In addition to Marilyn Muphy, Jonathan Rattner and Gregg Horowitz were in the audience, as well as half of the operations staff from the Belcourt. The total count was 64, which is comparable to other screenings in Sarratt. We'd like to have seen more, and some folks missed it who had previous commitments, but we're glad folks got to see it. And we don't think anyone walked out!

Benning very much enjoyed his stay here, including the time he spent in some classes and a figure-eight tour of rural roads through Bell Buckle, scouting locations for his current project "Small Roads."

So, all in all, chalk one up for Nashvegas!
