School Board Zones to be Revisited

The Rutherford County Board of Commissioners agreed tonight to revisit the school and road boards zoning districts.  Carol Cook motioned and Matthew Young seconded to reconvene the redistricting committee to again look at the maps that outline the areas board members serve.

After some intense discussion and with the measure receiving unconditional support from Brad Turner and Rhonda Allen, the motion passed 12-7-1.

What’s next?  This is LaVergne will be watching WHEN and WHERE the redistricting committee will meet so – this round – people will attend the meetings and committee members will see how important it is that there is fair and equal representation, specifically on the board that serves all the children of Rutherford County.

My sources tell me that the following people should be congratulated for taking a stand in front of the Rutherford County Board of Commissioners on our behalf:  Jason Cole, Ivy Hogan, Carolyn Hickerson, and Tom Broeker.  OUR THANKS TO YOU for standing in front of the microphone and speaking on behalf of residents of LaVergne, Smyrna, Eagleville, Lascassas, Milton, Readyville … the entire county!

Also thanks to Mayor Mosley, Alderman Green, and Alderman Waldron for attending the meeting tonight.
