Totally Partisan Blog Post: Megan Barry for Nashville Mayor
Written by Natalie Davis on July 15, 2015
Want to see a progressive in the mayor’s seat? I do, and I am not shy about saying it out loud.
Megan Barry is a progressive who has spent the seven years as an At-Large member of Metro Council working for Nashville’s neighborhoods and for the city’s future. Our issues are important to her: raising the quality of public schools, fighting for better public transit, working for affordable housing and fair wages, standing for the equality of all. (Megan officiated over Davidson County’s first legal same-sex weddings on June 26!)
She’s running a tough campaign to become Music City’s mayor, and she could always use the help. She’s not the centrist candidate, she hasn’t been vice mayor and she doesn’t have the financial backing of some right wing Super PAC from far afield. What she does have is the endorsements of the Tennessean and Out & About Nashville.
What she needs, though, as early voting starts Friday and the Aug. 6 Metro Nashville General Election is less than a month away, is people who share her progressive values and are willing to make calls, knock on doors, or volunteer in other ways to help make Megan Barry Nashville’s next mayor.
Canvassing will take place at numerous times and places in the area:
- Southeast Nashville/Cane Ridge – Thursdays 6 pm
- West Nashville – Thursdays 6 pm
- Old Hickory – Saturdays 10 am
- Sylvan Heights – Saturdays 11:30 (Megan is slated to be there); 1:30 pm; 3:30 pm
- East Nashville – Saturdays 10 am and 12 noon; Wednesdays 6 pm
- Donelson/Hermitage Saturdays 1-5 pm; Mondays 6 pm
