Correction to article A Life More Ordinary, The City Paper

I am writing to correct an error in the print edition of The City Paper page 14 wherein I was listed a previously having served on the Metro Human Relations Commission.

To the contrary my nomination was rejected by then Mayor Bredesen who was quoted in the Tennessean in section B, 9/15/1996 as saying;

"The notion was never to include every conceivable subgroup in the community," Bredesen said. My notion is to get together a group of serious people with the ability to make things happen who broadly represent the community. The idea that you have to have a Hispanic, a disable person, a this or that was never part of the notion of the commission with me", the mayor said.

Various persons have congratulated me for having previously served and I do not wish to give the impression that I did in fact serve on the commission.
