Bright & Early: Take Us Out To The Fair Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Tennessee State Fairgrounds supporters have been working hard to pull together more than 15,700 signatures on a petition that aims to put the fairgrounds preservation issue to a vote on the August ballot. They delivered the signatures to the county courthouse yesterday afternoon, figuring they had more than enough support to force the referendum before voters. The Davidson County Election Commission has to verify each and every one of the signatures to make sure they’re from valid Davidson County voters, and that piece will be monitored by attorney George Barrett on behalf of the Neighbors for Progress group, which does not support the preservation.
