ROLLIN HORTON ANNOUNCES CAMPAIGN FOR METRO COUNCIL
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nashville, Tenn., February 6 --- Rollin Horton announced today that he is running for the Metropolitan Council of Nashville and Davidson County in District 20 in the Aug. 3 General Election.
“Nashville is facing many new challenges and I believe it needs young, energetic leadership with innovative ideas and a willingness to cooperate for the best interests of our great and growing community,” Horton said.
The district seat is roughly bounded to the east by 44th Avenue North and White Bridge Road and to the north and west by the Cumberland River. The district seat will be vacated because incumbent Mary Carolyn Roberts will be term-limited for the office.
An active member in the community, Horton serves on the Board of The Nations Neighborhood Association. “We’ve identified five key issues for voters in our district that I plan to concentrate on: sidewalks and pedestrian safety, housing affordability, improved protection from property and personal crime, and supporting and fully funding our public schools.”
Horton grew up in Peoria, Ill. and attended Illinois State University for college and the University of Connecticut for law school. After graduation, he and his wife Samantha, who are high school sweethearts, relocated to Boston, Mass. Four years later, they relocated to Nashville for its quality of life and to raise a family. Today, Rollin and Samantha live in The Nations neighborhood with their dog, Lady, and their cat, Marie.
Horton, age 33, is a practicing attorney and specializes in business and tax issues. Outside interests include enjoying local restaurants and entertainment with wife Samantha, gardening, and playing fetch with Lady at West Park. Horton is an Officer and Regional Vice Chair for the Davidson County Democratic Party.
Mac Watson, Chair of The Nations Business Committee, is Horton’s campaign treasurer and manager.
