Re: “Myron Lowery for City Council (Again)?

The Council may have to adopt ranked choice voting for Council members to fill all the appointments. A public election would be even better.

Re: “Statue Removal Process Sets Wrong Precedent

Can Brooks do a gallery on the Public Promenade--dedicated park land-- without giving cars the best view in the City? Will the Council be sensitive on that issue?

Re: “TVA Finds High Arsenic, Lead Levels Near New Wells

MLG&W never determined the source of contamination of the water wells at Pine Hill Golf Course. There were two possible chemical companies that used that chemical. The past situation doesn't make me confident that there are no windows in the clay layer around the ash ponds.

Re: “Welcome to Memphis!

I'd like to know the average salary of those many people who work in tourism. How of the higher salaried people actually live in Memphis. The City has poured money into such projects as Beale Street Landing and even provided $10 million for the boat company. Just how many of their staff are well paid and live here.

Re: “Promenade Stand

Other cities having to spend millions to de-urbanize their riverfronts, while the some want to spend millions to do the opposite.

If there's one thing Friends for Our Riverfront can be proud of, it's that it kept the city from spending $300+ million doing the opposite of what smart cities do.
