Julie Lamb News

Julie’s website has been updated with some great info.  Check it out

For those of you who don’t yet know, Julie is running for Metro Council in the 22nd District (which is currently being served by Eric Crafton of “English Only” fame). 

Here’s an article from the City Paper that was published May 30th that will give you more info.

 She’s working on my “interview” – I’m in line at least.  She’s busy answering surveys from interest groups.   Interestingly, the new info at her site answers several of my questions, so when I post the interview, it might be a little redundant.  But hopefully, it’ll reach people who otherwise wouldn’t hear her message.

Her daughter also created her a MySpace profile.  It’s not bad.  If I ever run for council in the 23rd district, I’m going to hire her as a new media consultant.  Although it might be a good idea to change Julie’s age in her profile from “99”. 

Anyway, hopefully I’ll have the interview for you Monday or Tuesday.  In the meantime, check out her site and MySpace page. 

Shoot The Moose is slowly becoming the unofficial “Lamb For Council” blog, it would appear.  But, that’s a good thing.

EDITED TO ADD: OMG, I just read that city paper article in whole.  Arrogance. I’ve just been asaulted by a stench-filled wall of arrogance.  And it didn’t come from Mrs Lamb.  Just read the article.  Funny thing is, I probably agree with Crafton politically more than I disagree with him.  But his tone in this article is nothing short of offensive.  I know the printed word sometimes puts a tone in words that isn’t there in the spoken word, but how could you read that and not think that Crafton is an unbearable boar?

    Juliet “Julie” Lamb Announces Candidacy for Metro’s 22nd Council District

    Julie lamb, a Bellevue resident since 1990 has filed a qualifying petition with the election commission to run for Metro Council District 22.

    Julie moved to Nashville in 1987 and for almost 15 years worked as an Office manager/ administrative assistant at Huber & Lamb Appraisal Group, Inc., a real estate appraisal and real estate research business co-owned by her husband. She has a BBA from the University of Mississippi.

    In 2002 Julie became a full-time mom to her two daughters and began volunteering at their schools and within the community. Her volunteer efforts include Belle Meade United Methodist Children’s Center, then Harpeth Valley Elementary, Westmeade Elementary, Bellevue Middle and Hillwood High School. She eventually became the Bellevue Middle School PTO President in 2004-05 and then Hillwood Band Boosters Vice President 2005-07. These positions allowed her to organize numerous successful fundraisers. She has been the Hillwood Cluster Chair since 2005 and is the new President for the Hillwood PTSO.

    While serving for Hillwood Cluster, she was elected Parents Advisory Council chair for the 2006-07 and was asked to participate on the Metro Nashville Public Schools Strategic Planning committee which is currently working on the seven year plan for Metro Nashville Public Schools and with the Small Learning Communities committee at Hillwood High School.

    She is a member at Belle Meade United Methodist Church and taught Children’s Sunday school for almost five years. She is also a member of the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce.

    Among the top priorities for Lamb as a Metro Council Member will be to assure responsible growth in a manner that enhances our community and provides minimal impact on traffic. Good planning and working together with the citizens and developers, will in turn create some wonderful synergy for Bellevue. All stakeholders have to look for right mix of retail, business and restaurants for a limited amount of available land in “downtown” Bellevue order to succeed at creating a neighborhood that will be highly desirable.

    It is also mportant to find a suitable site for the Bellevue Library that is acutely undersized, thus improving an asset that is genuinely required in our community. We need to continue to build sidewalks, bikeways and greenways to encourage more walking/cycling in our community, thus reducing dependency on our automobiles improving the quality of life. Another priority is maintaining and upgrading our sports facilities which keep families together in positive settings.

    Another of Lamb’s priorities would be to continue improvement of quality education, focusing on the communities’ ability to become one of many assets available to our children to succeed. The opportunities for our local businesses to partner with the schools to provide mentoring, internships and the ability to help transform the Small Learning Communities into programs that will provide Nashville with graduates that will become productive citizens. The high school dropouts truly cost our community in many ways including increased crime and gang activities, reduced numbers of available educated employees for hire, low paying jobs when they are hired, the need for public assistance and the continued need for affordable housing that tends to cause property value decline in areas of our community. A more educated workforce will also help bring in quality jobs which will positively affect the city’s ability for recruiting business opportunities and broaden our tax base.

    Please join Julie for her Campaign Kickoff on Sunday, June 10th from 2:00 until 4:00pm. at the River Plantation Club House, Section 8, located at 7508 Old Harding Road across from the Bellevue United Methodist Church. For more information see http://www.LambforCouncil.com.
