What S-townMike said – Freda for the 19th

The political fortunes for those of us in the 19th district of Davidson County are going, in the words of the fabled cliche, from famine to feast. We’ve been under-represented by our current city councilman Ludye ‘cris’ Wallace for the past few seasons (honestly, I’m being kind with the hyphenated ‘under-represented’).

Ludye’s time is up, thanks to term limits. Normally, I’m not a fan of term limits (except for executive positions), but honestly, for once I’m grateful for this non-democratic law. We have a wonderful panel of candidates to choose from this year, including three very strong contenders, each of whom would serve our district well.

As impressed as I am with Erica Gilmore and David Shaw, I will be voting for Freda Player for basically the same reasons outlined in this ‘Enclave’ post by Mike. Freda has worked the neighborhoods and listened well. She understands our issues and has the capacity, energy, and political savvy to work the council.

Many of us in the Salemtown/Germantown area were impressed when all five candidates appeared at a recent forum both neighborhoods jointly sponsored. No matter who wins this race, our neighborhoods will be represented and heard. I appreciate the time, effort and spirit that each candidate has poured into this campaign.
