The John Ingram - Amazon Metro Courthouse

Metro is required to have a balanced budget and we do not.  We must find $30 million more in
revenue or cut $30 million in expenses.  I have an idea for how to fill that hole in the budget: Sell naming right to the Metro Courthouse.  We have the Bridgestone Arena and the Nissan Stadium, why not sell naming rights to the Metro Courthouse?

Since Amazon has teamed up with John Ingram and created A Better Nashville PAC, which has made major contributions to candidates for Metro Council (link), and since both Ingram and Amazon and their associates have given donations to many candidates for Council independent of the PAC, they may be interested in putting their name on the Courthouse of the city they are buying.  I don't know if it should be "The Amazon-Ingram Courthouse" or "The Ingram-Amazon Courthouse."
