SoundWaves Water Park at Opryland

Donelson Business News – February 2019

I was happy to join Mayor Briley, Ryman Hospitality CEO Colin Reed and members of Marriott’s leadership team to cut the ribbon on the new SoundWaves water park at Opryland.  Remember that there is a special Davidson County resident discount.

I joined the Nashville Chamber of Commerce and team at the Better Business Bureau on celebrating their move from downtown to Century City.  They very much needed larger office space as they’ve grown over the years.

Congratulations and welcome to Nashville Piano Rescue!  As a piano player, I’m of course very subjective, but they do fantastic work.  If you’ve ever wanted a piano but were afraid of the cost, go check them out.  They’re a great addition to the music shops that have come to town over the past few years like Blues Vintage Guitars and William’s Fine Violins & Luthiers.

Welcome Nashville Piano Rescue!

The Donelson-Hermitage Chamber of Commerce’s 11th Annual “Taste of Donelson-Hermitage” will be March 25th at The Inn at Opryland.  Call the Chamber at 615-883-7896 for more info or to save a space.

It fills me with great pride to drive past the former Papa Murphy’s building one morning with the sun shining down on it and an “Available” sign on it.  I have spent this entire term fighting against an attempt by a predatory lender trying to skirt regulations and illegally expand into this building, which would have degraded the character and quality of Donelson’s central business district and continued to exploit our most vulnerable neighbors.  I’m proud of the legislation I passed strengthening regulations and we finally defeated them in the court system as they left the building abandoned and instead challenged regulations up through the TN State Court of Appeals.  I’m very pleased to see these efforts have finally paid off and we will hopefully see a new business here that we can all be proud of and warmly welcome.
