OTP would argue with a lamp post. And lose.
It will pass easily because this is a special election. Early voting hit a whopping 2% of registered voters. Only the committed will bother to vote, and there are a lot more committed to Yes than to No. In a miniscule, embarrassing turnout, it passes 60:40.
OTP: "The city is trying to protect the taxpayers interest in the taxes they spent for those schools and future payments that wuld have to be made if new schools are built because the SCC couldn't get those."
You mean the county taxes that the citizens of Memphis paid for those schools? What interest does the city council have in the county taxes that are paid by Memphians?
Getting arrested for filming the popo? I see a Fly on the Wall story.
She's all that and a bag of chips!
Sounds like a good plan to me. Whitehaven really needs a few more wig stores, pawn shops, and Spinnaz rental outlets.
Reb - How does making the school optional cause it to be more attractive to a Memphis parent? The zoning doesn't change; you're still going to have 3 dipsticks for every "good kid" in each class. And since it works for you, I take it you are nowhere near SoPo. So you are OK with a muni district in which the people in and around the three "G" school neighborhoods get an unscheduled colonoscopy, and the disparity in property values between the two sides of the tracks gets even wider?
