Our Mayor is more concern with building a Convention Center than worrying about the groups that help non profit chartities ie Bill Wilkerson Speech and Hearing Center. He is deterimined to build this Center whether the voters of Nashville want it or not. Nashville voters WAKE UP, if we do not have the money to ensure that all of our children have school books the first 2 weeks of school we can not pay for a Convention Center. Flood your council member with calls and make them aware that you oppose this center. I have been a Nashvillian all my life and never have I been so disgusted and disappointed with someone my vote helped to win an election. Does our Mayor owe POLITICAL FAVORS???? How will these charities now raise money? How will many of the vendors who use the Flea Market to supplement their income survive??? Maybe they could all get jobs at the new Hotel at the Convention Center and donate their salaries. WE NEED TO LOOK AT A RECALL VOTE. This may be the only way to prevent us from being saddle with this huge debt that only more and increases in our property tax will never be able to pay off.

Of course KKKarl Dean owes favors to the wealthy who put him into power. Thats how it works folks. The wealthy business interests put their own puppets into power. The puppet then takes his orders and does what he is told.

When I heard that this sack of excrement (KKKarl Dean) was demolishing the Fairgrounds instinctively I knew that some wealthy property developers would eventually end up with that land.

KKKarl doesnt give a whit about the flea market that was a yearly event. Who doesn't care if that was a source of income for 'little people.' He doesn't work for 'little people.'

He's a bitch for the wealthy.
