We know this column is supposed to be about the upcoming mayoral election, but this week, the campaign for Nashville's new leadership was overshadowed by news coming out of the state legislature. In a nutshell: A likely "no" on health insurance for poor people, a probable "yes" to waiting periods on abortions, and a definitive "not" to the Bible becoming the official state book.
This week marks the eighth (!) in our #VoteYall campaign – in which we work to make it EASY to keep up with the issues swirling in this upcoming mayoral and Metro Council race here in Music City. (Plus, we sprinkle in a few nuggets from the state legislature, which has nothing to do with the city election, but can be interesting and highly entertaining.)
We are admittedly a day late on this week's #VoteYall political notes column because we spent all day yesterday shooting video with some truly fabulous local leaders who are as passionate as we are about driving voter participation – especially among young people and new people. It's your city, and you're a driving reason it's so creative and collaborative. Make sure you have a say in its future, and:
