Mayor Karl Dean told the Nashville City Paper here what the defeat of English Only means to him:

“You always need to make sure people feel welcome in our city and our city celebrates diversity,” Dean said. “I would look at the English Only vote as the confirmation of that. I said at the time, we’re the only major American city that’s been tested in that way and we passed the test.

“So I’m pretty proud of the way our city responded.”
