Mike Turner 2015!

Re. Mike Turner of Old Hickory has indicated that he is considering a run for Mayor of Metro Nashville in 2015, as recently re-elected Mayor Karl Dean is term-limited and unable to seek a third term, according to reports from Mike Morrow of TN Report and TNYD President Sean Braisted.

Turner, House Democratic Caucus chair, also noted that he plans to run for re-election next year despite efforts by the GOP to re-district him into an unwinnable district.  He is outspoken, stands up for working people and small businesses, and is never afraid to call out members of the GOP publicly (and, on occasion, members of his OWN party, albeit privately). I think he would be a great Mayor, and maybe some day, a great Governor, in my not-so-humble opinion.

Keep an eye on Rep. Turner!
