Davidson County Election Commission appeals court decision striking down anti-tax referendum

by Yue Stella Yu,  The Tennessean, June 25,2021- Metro's legal fight with the Davidson County Election Commission over the anti-tax hike referendum is anything but over. 

Commissioners on Friday voted 3-2 along party lines to appeal a judge's decision this week striking down the referendum asking voters to roll back last year's property tax increase. 

Judge Russell Perkins on Tuesday ruled the 4 Good Government-backed initiatives defective and unconstitutional and ordered the commission to cancel the election. In addition to the appeal, commissioners voted to reschedule the July 27 referendum for September 21, contingent upon approval from the appellate court. (link)
