Former Nashville school board member Fran Bush announces run for mayor

Fran Bush
by Rachel Wegner, The Tennessean, Feb. 18, 2023 -

  • Fran Bush served from 2018-2022 as the District 6 board member for the Metro Nashville Public Schools Board of Education.
  • She announced on Friday she will run for Nashville mayor.
  • Bush joins a growing list of candidates who announced a mayoral run after Mayor John Cooper said he would not seek a second term.

... Bush was vocal on her disagreement over schools staying closed due to COVID-19. While on the board in 2021, she faced controversy when she told teachers “quit your day job” if they did not feel safe returning to schools during the pandemic. The Nashville Education Association then filed a complaint against her. Bush lost to Cheryl Mayes for the District 6 seat on the MNPS Board of Education in August. She had served since 2018.

  1. She’s great but has no idea how to campaign. That’s why she did worse than the Republican school board candidates despite all her good work.
