Antioch, TN 37217

Dear Councilwoman Johnson:

I hope all is well with you and that you had a good holiday break. I am Richie Hoffman, President of the Masters Association of Nashboro Village Golf Community. I have recently heard about your proposal to have Metro purchase the Nashboro Golf Course. It is critical that you please stop this fast movement of the acquisition. I hope that you received my voice mail messages from yesterday, December 29, 2011. Others and I also left you messages with the council staff. We know that you are very busy, but we wanted you to know that there is a private buyer that is interested in the acquisition of the Golf Course. This is huge! And we are very excited about this new development.

Councilwoman Johnson, just consider, if given the opportunity for the private entity it would result in generating positive tax dollars to Metro government, creation of jobs, and the sustainability of a community that is already a form of open green space. Jo Beth Hastings, one of my neighbors from the Nashboro Woods Association says it best if the private acquisition is given the opportunity to purchase, “The federal dollars that were going to be used for the public purchase can now be directed elsewhere which would be a win-win for everyone”.

We asked you and others involved for your support to allow the private acquisition the opportunity. I understand that he has reached out to you and other officials regarding his interest. Please help us save our community. I look forward to hearing from you and would truly appreciate talking with you.
