Segways Enhance Downtown Security
Look for more Segways on the sidewalks of downtown Nashville this year! The Nashville Downtown Partnership has added three new units which will be utilized by their Safety Ambassadors and Metro Police officers from the Central Precinct to patrol the downtown area more efficiently. Because of the Segway's platform height, the user has improved visibility. Other advantages include being able to cover a larger area, being perceived as more approachable, and improving the response time to urgent situations. Personnel using the units must first complete a training program.
Bob Clement is receiving overwhelming support in his campaign for Mayor. The Clement Campaign has great momentum and has raised more than $630,000 so far in this Mayor's campaign. Clement will file his disclosure on Wednesday morning. The report will show that Clement raised $300,949.59 this reporting period and has $475,881.00 cash on hand.
"I am encouraged and humbled to receive such broad support from the people of Nashville," Bob Clement said. "Nashville is a great and growing city but we can do better. My vision is to have an open and accessible Mayor's administration and to make our neighborhoods safer, and improve response times for police, fire and ambulance responders. I will also work every day to make our local schools better. Together, we will make Nashville an even better place for our children and grandchildren."
"With over 700 people contributing to our campaign, we are confident that we are building a base of support that reaches across Nashville from Inglewood to Antioch," said Briley. "This campaign is a marathon, and with the extensive fundraising base and quality finance committee we've established we are in a position to run and win this race."
To Whom It May Concern:
After my retirement from the legislature, I am pleased to offer to you my services as a lobbyist. Following the requisite waiting period, one year...I will be extending the governmental relations division of my private practice in an effort to assist you and others in ensuring that legislation essential to the betterment of your business practices is supported and legislation to the detriment of your business practices is strongly opposed. After twelve years as a state senator, sitting on numerous committees, attending both regular and special legislative sessions, and serving as Chairman of the Senate Environment Committee and Caucus Chairman of the Senate Republican Caucus, I have not only had the opportunity to observe and participate in the legislative process, I have also met and formed strong relationships with so many individuals continuously involved in the process. I have worked closely with and become dear friends with many holding office and those who keep the wheels turning behind the scenes. Further, through countless leadership and legislative policy meetings with the executive branch, I have both gained first-hand knowledge of how policy decisions are made and become intimately familiar with the applicable rules of law and procedure that regularly present necessary hurdles that cannot be circumvented.
Former Tennessee Deputy Gov. Dave Cooley has formed Cooley Public Strategies, and will operate the new consultancy as a subsidiary of Nashville public relations firm McNeely Pigott & Fox, it was announced today. Cooley will also serve as a principal of MP&F. "Cooley Public Strategies will provide assistance with problem solving, strategic planning and market positioning for private-sector companies and organizations," Cooley said. "I am also excited about reconnecting with my longtime colleagues at MP&F. Their depth of experience and talent from top to bottom provide the perfect platform for launching a more specialized consultancy."
Bill Phillips Company (how creative!) will be established on Thursday of this week. Creating the "public affairs strategies" consulting company is something I have thought about doing for years. I now have the opportunity to do so. After considering various names for a firm, I decided my product is me and my expertise, thus the name Bill Phillips Company.... I anticipate beginning with primarily Nashville-based clients but do anticipate involvement with at least one national organization in the near future and have an excellent possibility of working with other existing consulting firms on projects as well. And of course, I plan on leaving time to do my volunteer work with the International Republican Institute to assist emerging democracies around the globe."
