Metro Council At Large Campaign
Finally, as you’ve no doubt heard and seen, I have decided to run for Metro Council At Large in the August 2023 election. I want to take my laser focus and passion for Donelson and apply it to the whole county. It’s been a humbling opportunity to lead Donelson through balanced growth and development as all of Middle Tennessee continues to grow at a rapid pace. As “Downtown Donelson” comes to life through our new Donelson Branch Library and a revitalized Donelson Station to ensuring historic protections, single-family neighborhoods and rural areas in the county are supported and preserved, we can find a way to channel our success as a city into the support our neighborhoods need across all of Davidson County. We need to push harder on creating the intersections between transit and affordable housing as well as our efforts to ensure our growth also means sustainable and resilient communities that grow with thoughtful intention.
Finally, it also means that our growth needs to support and codify what culture truly means to become a great international city of music. As we see our local independent music venues struggle to survive and creatives no longer able to afford to live here, I want to help ensure we’ll be “Music City” for the next century and beyond. We can no longer take for granted that the dream of a songwriter and musician will always be able to come to Nashville and realize that dream. That’s a big part of the magic of our city and we must protect, preserve, and advance that dream that contributes to huge economic impact for our city and region. My kick-off event will be at The 5 Spot in East Nashville, one our of great local independent music venues. I hope to continue earning your support as I open a next chapter in my community service.
