National Night Out Disrupted

Tonight is the National Night Out and in many communities including La Vergne local residents are getting to meet and interact with local emergency responders in a more casual setting.  Free food was provided by local business owners and many city employees donated their time to come assist with festivities.

Sadly, members of Concerned Citizens of La Vergne showed up with petitions trying to get signatures to dissolve the current city charter.  Using the National Night Out for political purposes seemed to be a breaking point for some residents as at least one told the petitioners that this type of political event is unwelcome there.

Police were eventually brought over and the petitioners stated they were there just getting signatures and registration for the event.  After checking with sources their was no one appointed for registration.

Fishy business is going on in La Vergne with the petition.  If anyone comes to you about signing a petition and they do not fully inform you that it is to dissolve the city charter, then to have a special election to elect commissioners then do not sign it.  This petition does not remove any property tax increases, water rate increase, or sewer increase.  Also, any parts of the City of La Vergne that were annexed into the city after the current charter was established would fall out of the city and would be under the county or could be annexed by Smyrna.
