Mayor Purcell wants think tank on immigrants, "International Mayor's Night Out"
"Mayor Bill Purcell Tuesday said he will introduce an 'International Mayor’s Night Out' in response to a two-year study of Nashville’s immigrant community. He also ordered a performance audit of the Department of Social Services to see how many of the study’s recommendations could be implemented."
"Purcell referred to the Nashville Civic Design Center as 'the conscience' of the design community and a good model for a non-governmental think tank on immigrants."
"'It’s not controlled by or, in the end limited by, the vision or lack of vision of the government,' said Purcell."
