Metro Council District 33 Special Election Endorsements

After vetting candidates for the special election to fill Sam Coleman's District 33 Metro Council seat, the Central Labor Council is pleased to announce a favorable recommendation for two candidates: Antoinette Lee and Jack Byrd III. The election will be Aug. 15, with early voting July 26-Aug. 10. 

Delegates from five Locals interviewed three of the six candidates running for the Antioch-area seat and were pleased that two had strong ties to labor. Antoinette Lee has been a Tennessee Education Association lobbyist and staff woman, and Jack Byrd III is a former SEIU Local 205 member and steward. Both candidates polled strongly on issues important to our affiliates and were vocal about their commitment to let Labor guide their position on issues that come across their desk. We feel confident that either of these candidates would be strong allies and advocates for working families in Nashville.
