Davidson County Elections

2010 was a year of grassroots uprising which put many Republican candidates in office. 2011 has been showing that some of these are not true conservatives and some are shining stars. 2012 is a presidential cycle and may further demonstrate the move toward true conservative and constitutional principles - if we start early enough.

Davidson County Elections

Postby GuardianDevil001 » Thu Jul 14, 2011 1:53 pm

Hi Girls and Boys,
One week ago I sent an email to every mayoral, vice-mayoral, at-large council, and 6th district council candidate in Davidson County who did not cast a vote in the 2009 proposal to allow Handgun Carry Permit holders to go armed in municipal parks, and for whom I could find an email address. The email asked the following: “What is your position on allowing Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit holders to go armed in Davidson County parks and/or greenways? Would you introduce, sponsor, or support a proposal allowing either of the two or both?” Here are the responses (or lack thereof):

6th District Candidates
Borzak, Bob: Did not respond.*
Rich, Dave: Did not respond.
Schmidt, Hans: OPPOSES the right to carry in parks.
Westerholm, Peter: Did not respond.
*Bob Borzak recently suffered a brain aneurysm and is recovering at Vanderbilt Hospital. This probably explains why he has not responded.

At-Large Candidates
Barry, Megan: Current district 8 Council Member, voted AGAINST parks carry in 2009.
Coleman, Sam: Current district 32 Council Member; voted in FAVOR of parks carry in 2009.
Crafton, Eric: Current district 22 Council Member; voted in FAVOR of parks carry in 2009.
Crawford, Donna: Did not respond.
Francois, Renard: Did not respond.
Garrett, Tim: Current At Large Council Member; voted in FAVOR of parks carry in 2009.
Jakes, Ken: SUPPORTS right to carry in parks.
Maxwell, James A (Jim): Could not find email address.
Maynard, Jerry: Current At Large Council Member, voted AGAINST parks carry in 2009.
McFolin, Donald Ray: Could not find email address.
O'Donniley, Don: Could not find email address.
Speer, Keith: Could not find email address.
Steine, Ronnie: Current At Large Council Member, voted AGAINST parks carry in 2009.
Townsend, Charles L Sr: Could not find email address.
Tygard, Charlie: Current At Large Council Member, voted AGAINST parks carry in 2009.
Usmani, Sajid W: Did not respond.
Wilhoite, Vivian: Current At Large Council Member, voted AGAINST parks carry in 2009.
Wooten, Jack: Could not find email address.

Vice Mayor
Baxter, James Arnold: Could not find email address.
Neighbors, Diane: Current Vice Mayor, voted AGAINST parks carry in 2009. Cast deciding vote!

Mayor
Barnes, Marvin: Could not find email address.
Casper, Bruce: Could not find email address.
Dean, Karl: Did not respond.
Keeton, James: SUPPORTS the right to carry in parks

My assumption is that those who did not respond are against parks carry. This means not only do I disagree on the issue but that the candidate did not have the courtesy and respect to respond to a legitimate question. I provide this information so that you can make an informed decision this Election Day. If you are aware of any errors or omissions then please let me know. If I get any late responses I will update the group.

I love it: Renard Francois did not respond to my question but he did put me on his email list!
