NASHVILLE – Tennessee State Representative Bob Freeman has endorsed Mayor David Briley’s bid for re-election on August 1.
“It’s an honor to have an endorsement from Representative Freeman,” Briley said. “He’s a well-respected member of our state legislature, and he’s been an active, contributing Nashville resident for years.”
Rep. Bob Freeman was elected to office last fall, giving Tennessee Democrats a seat in the House that previously belonged to Republicans for decades. Outside of his public work, Freeman is Vice President of Real Estate Investment and Development with Forestar Group, Inc. and serves as a Board Member for the TN Environmental Council and the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy among others.
“I have no doubt that David Briley is the right person to lead Nashville right now,” Freeman said. “We are at a critical moment, and our mayor has been steering us in the right direction since coming into office. He needs another four years.”
As Early Voting begins, Freeman joins a number of other civic leaders in Nashville who have endorsed Mayor Briley’s campaign, including Phil Bredesen, Howard Gentry, Brenda Wynn, Pat Shea, Bishop Jerry Maynard, and Freeman’s father, Bill Freeman.
