Glover Unloads On Education
NASHVILLE- At-Large candidate Steve Glover, a longtime and tenacious proponent of cost-of-living adjustments (COLA) for public safety and education personnel, released the following remarks regarding the chaos emanating from the School Board yesterday:
“Despite the chaos coming from the school board right now, the blueprint for Nashville’s prosperity is about getting back to basics, and that means honoring the COLAs promised to our public safety personnel and teachers. Getting this into the education budget has been my top priority for almost a year and still is now. As we teach our kids, our word matters, and it matters whether it’s an election year or not. Giving public safety personnel 3% this year after skipping last year just doesn’t cut it, and our teachers are still waiting. A promise delayed is a promise denied.”
Glover, who works as a financial adviser, formerly served on the Metro Board of Education as chair of Budget and Finance, helping steer the system through the most challenging fiscal crisis it has ever faced.
Since 2011 Glover has represented District 12 on the Metro Council where he chairs the Education Committee and serves on Budget and Finance, Affordable Housing, and Planning and Zoning.
