Vote to send Justin Jones back to the House is unanimous in Metro Council

by Rod Williams, April 11, 2023 - I am not surprised that the Council appointed Justin Jones to fill the vacancy created by his ouster. I am surprised that it was unanimous. I thought there would be about five votes against it. 

Retuning Jones is more poking the bear. The State has already taken action to cut the size of the Council, reduce the revenue stream of the the Music City Center, take over the Airport, the regulation of beer in parts of Nashville, and take over the Sports Authority.  I felt it was unwise for the State House to oust the two Junstins but I think it is unwise for the Council to appoint him to fill the vacancy.
