Councilman Jim Hodge sent out an e-mail urging a vote against both amendments in the upcoming special election.  Michael Cass of the Tennessean has the full story here.  Here is an excerpt:

The second charter amendment will, I fear, result in yearly special elections like this one in January, which is costing us about $300,000.  Since we already have elections every two years, I can not justify such extra expenses in good conscience.  It appears to me to be a bad and expensive policy, which is contrary to good government operations.
