An overwhelming number of Metro Council members are asking state lawmakers not to change when Metro's elections are held.
On Tuesday night, 30 of the 40 council members signed a resolution urging lawmakers not to vote for a proposal to move Metro's elections so that they coincide with the presidential elections.
State Rep. and Councilman Jim Gotto is behind the push to change it. He said it would save taxpayers' money.
But opponents said it should be a local government's decision and not a state issue.
If the bill does pass, it would go into effect for Metro's elections in 2015.
