NASHVILLE – Former Metro Council candidate, Kent Sandidge of District 13 has endorsed Josh Stites in the District 13 runoff election that culminates on September 15th, 2011. Josh recently finished first in the primary election with 43.9% of the vote.

Sandidge recently placed third in the primary election for outgoing Councilman Carl Burch’s seat on the Metro Council. Burch was term-limited from running for a third term. Sandidge garnered 16.7% of the vote in District 13, placing him behind Marilyn Robinson’s 39.4% of the vote.

"Now that I am no longer in the race for District 13 councilman,” Sandidge said, “I am happy to support Josh Stites in the run-off election. His experience running his family's small business and working in the state treasury sets an important foundation for leadership regarding financial issues concerning Metro.

“Likewise, in my experience, Josh has shown himself to be a man of integrity and character and someone who can be trusted to act in the best interest of our district."

“I am deeply grateful for Kent’s support at this time,” said Stites. “His work ethic and dedication to the 13th District have not gone unnoticed. I look forward to working with him and many more of his supporters as we strive to continually improve the city of Nashville.”
