DHNA to host Metro Council Candidate Forum

The Donelson-Hermitage Neighborhood Association (DHNA) is proud to host a Candidate Forum for candidates running for Metro Council seats in Donelson and Hermitage on June 25th at 7:00pm at the Hermitage Police Precinct at 3701 James Kay Lane.

The forum will consist of two question and answer sessions. The first part of the forum will consist of questions from DHNA's Board of Directors. The second half will feature an opportunity for candidates to answer questions from the audience.

Questions will include topics such as rezoning, community involvement, commercial development, constituent representation, and the future of Donelson and Hermitage.

DHNA is proud to bring the community members and council candidates together. This forum will allow neighbors an opportunity to actually meet the candidates and learn firsthand how they intend to represent their constituents the next four years if elected to the Metro Council.

Invited candidates include Shane Burkett and Jim Gotto - District 12; Carl Burch and Tony Derryberry - District 13; James Bruce Stanley and Harold White - District 14; and Phil Claiborne, Gary Neal Howell, and Larry Keeton - District 15.

Neighbors in District 11 (seat vacated by Feller Brown) are invited to join the Old Hickory Historic Village Neighborhood Association on Tuesday, June 26th, at 6:30 pm at the Old Hickory Community Center for a candidate forum featuring Johnny Ellis, Darren Jernigan, and Rick McClintock.

Both forums are free and open to the public.

Democracy is such an important gift. We must always exercise our right to vote. Strong voter turnout will make sure that the people's candidates are elected to represent our community.
