Who's endorsing who for Mayor. (update)

by Rod Williams, July 26, 2023- The Tennessean has updated an article, "Nashville mayoral race 2023: See who has endorsed the candidates."  It provides a long list of who has secured which endorsements. The Nashville Scene has also published a similar piece.  Below are some endorsements that I think are significant:

Former U.S. Congressman Jim Cooper on Wednesday endorsed state Sen. Jeff Yarbro

Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall endorsed Matt Wiltshire

Wiltshire was earlier endorsed by the Nashville Fraternal Order of Police.

Wiltshire received the endorsement of several current and former members of the Metro Council, including Nancy VanReece, Robert Nash, John Rutherford, George Armistead, Phil Claiborne, Stewart Clifton, Jacobia Dowell, Jamie Isabel, Sean McGuire, Doug Pardue, Phil Ponder, Jason Potts, Bill Pridemore, Carter Todd, Charlie Tygard, and Chris Whitson.

TIRRC Votes, a nonprofit affiliated with the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition endorsed Freddie O'Connell on July 19.

David A. Fox, former school board chair and 2015 mayoral candidate, endorsed Alice Rolli.

District Attorney Glenn Funk endorsed Vivian Wilhoite, which in my view, is a firm reason not to vote for her. 

State Rep. Jason Powell, a Nashville Democrat, endorsed mayoral candidate Freddie O’Connell.

Several state lawmakers have endorsed Heidi Campbell, including state Reps. Bo Mitchell, John Ray Clemmons, Bob Freeman and Gloria Johnson, and state Sen. Sara Kyle.

Former state Sen. Brenda Gilmore, Metro Trustee Erica Gilmore and Davidson County Clerk Brenda Wynn have endorsed At-Large Metro Councilmember Sharon Hurt’s campaign for mayor.

Sunrise Movement Nashville, "a local chapter of the Sunrise Movement, a youth-led climate justice organization working to stop the climate crisis and creating millions of good jobs through a Green New Deal" has endorsed Freddie O'Connell. 

Bob Mendes, Metro Councilmember At-Large; Sean Parker, Metro Councilmember, District 5; Erin Evans, Metro Councilmember, District 12; Sandra Sepulveda, Metro Councilmember, District 30; Dave Rosenberg, Metro Councilmember, District 35; Russ Bradford, Metro Councilmember, District 13; and Jill Speering, former school board member has endorsed Freddie O'Connell. 

Americans for Tax Reform has endorsed Alice Rollie.

Rod Williams, former Councilmember and publisher of The Disgruntled Republican has endorsed Alice Rollie.
