Folks in Detroit are asking a great question. Why is a Detroit methadone clinic manager on Nashville's city council?
The article at MLive.com notes much of the trouble between CM Pam Murray (District 5-East Nashville) and residents of her district. They provide handy links to Nashville news reports and even YouTube video of the woman defending a recent zoning bill.
They also make mention of the brand spanking new WeThePeopleOfDistrictFive.com website for recalling the councilwoman. The recall effort's motto:
Our Councilmember should be from Music City...not Motor CityIf you want to contact the recall folks email them at: WethePeopleD5@yahoo.com
With this article it looks like Murray will be fighting on two fronts now.
UPDATE: Channel 5 has a report on the petition drive. Remarkably, they managed to find Murray somewhere. I was unimpressed by her displaying a standard expanding file folder as evidence of all the work she's done in six years for the district. Not even an inch a year of paperwork.
"My true neighbors know I have done my job over there," said Murray."
What exactly is a 'true neighbor"? Exactly where do they live?
I caught a Channel 2 report with their Chris Bundgaard while making dinner but I don't see a link on their site. Pity. There was video of Bundgaard doing what so many had done before--trying to get a hold of Murray via phone and getting a full voice mail box instead.
UPDATE II: Here's the Channel 2 video.
Thanks for the link, Schaffdk.
