In the last two blog posts, I addressed some of the issues people have with candidates. One being communication with citizens. David A. Fox offers voters the opportunity to speak with him over the phone. He is referring to this process as a “Speed Date.” All a vote must do is schedule a time to have David A. Fox to call you. The call will be no more than ten minutes. According to his website, he will spend about 30 seconds telling you why he is running. Then, you will be able to ask him anything you want and receive an honest response from Mr. Fox. Afterwards, he will ask you a question. It’s that simple! To get this “Speed Date” started, book a time by shooting him an email at Vesia@FoxforNashville.com. Advertisements say he is a well-rounded family man that enjoys family activities and the elderly. For more information about him, visit his website.
Bill Freeman’s campaign is about social issues within the community. His campaign shows concern for neighborhood safety, diversity and veterans. With his experience in real estate, he plans to build afterschool centers equipped to teach a child a new art or skill. He supports same-sex marriage and increasing minimum wage. Currently, Bill Freeman serves as Chairman of Freeman Webb, Inc. For more information about him, visit his website.
