"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest."

—Benjamin Franklin

 

Quality public education is at the foundation of the American Dream.  In recent years we have seen an under appreciation of teachers, school bus drivers, janitors and support staff.  As Nashville booms, too many children are being left behind because of underinvestment in our public schools.  Nashville is the “It City,” yet 1 in 5 residents live in poverty.  Metro Nashville Public Schools can provide two components of the comprehensive solution to that problem: the highest quality education for all children in Nashville; and quality, middle class jobs for residents who choose to dedicate their lives to that effort.

 

The Central Labor Council of Nashville and Middle Tennessee would like to thank all of our affiliates  that volunteered their time to screen, interview, and deliberate over candidates/endorsements for the upcoming August 4th  election.  We also would like to thank all of the candidates for their willingness to serve our community.  It is after careful deliberation that our central body would like to announce our endorsement and full support of the following candidates.
