Stites wins election for District 13 seat on Nashville Metro Council

Commits to service, low taxes, accountability

NASHVILLE – Josh Stites will be the next Councilman for District 13 following his victory on Thursday in the general election against opponent Marilyn Robinson. After low turnout in early voting, Stites took the election with 60% of the vote compared to Robinson’s 40%. More than 1,000 votes were cast with nearly 250 cast in early voting.

“I look forward to serving my community and the City of Nashville for the next four years,” said Stites. “I want to thank all of those who supported my campaign and voted for me; your belief in my candidacy has been truly uplifting. I look forward to hearing from the people of District 13 to determine what will help make our district even better.”

“I also want to thank my wife, Jenny, and my family for their support. They have worked especially hard during this campaign, and without their help this would have been a far greater challenge.”

“I plan to represent our city well by encouraging growth in business, responsible spending, sound budgeting and fiscal policy and much more. Nashville is a great city, and a growing city. We need to plan well for the future, and I look forward to being a part of that planning.”

Stites will be sworn in at a date to be announced in the coming weeks.
