Hyper-local political blogging

Hyper-local political blogging: My Nashville Metro Councilman (and friend) Chris Whitson resigned from the council today because a new state statute could one day be used to interpret as a “conflict of interest” any work his law firm does on behalf of corporate clients who have any type of contract with the city.

While corrupt Tennessee lawmakers have displayed the need to enact laws like this, it is unfortunate that such actions have the unintended consequence of forcing the resignation of one of the good guys like Chris.

Our loss.
