opinion, page 2, last paragraph, " Accordingly. for the for mentioned reasons, this OFFICE concludes that Tennessee law does NOT currently explicity authorize a county commission or a county mayor to use county funds to pay for communications that advocate FOR or AGAINST adoption of a measure in a local referendum." to anti-charter person, I do not think you will be getting any money to buy signs and the charter commission will not be getting any money either. The way I understand it, the charter commission can print and distribute the printed charter, but if they want to tell you to vote YES, then they have to pay for those ads out of their own pocket, so if you want to buy signs to put in your yard that say vote NO, you will have to pay for then yourself. good luck
