YOUR TURN: AutoZone Park purchase

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - This week's "Your Turn" goes to Rachael Lovejoy. Lovejoy is one of many people who joined in the debate on the Action News 5 Facebook page about the City of Memphis purchasing AutoZone Park.

A few people thought the city's purchase of the baseball stadium was a good idea. Most did not. Lovejoy was among those who were opposed. In her words:

"Wow. We can purchase AutoZone Park on a whim but can't afford to pay our teachers or put money into our school system for our kids, much less pay our police and fire departments their due pensions. They put their lives on the line every day. I'm amazed at the priorities of this poorly governed city. I'm sure I as well as many others will remember this come election time. Time for a real change in this city. Time to clean house."

That's Rachael Lovejoy's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
