NASHVILLE – State Senator Doug Henry, State Representative Jim Gotto and State Rep. Ben West (retired) have formally announced their support for Metro Council Candidate Josh Stites in his race for the 13th District Council seat. Stites is in a runoff election to be held on September 15th.

"I am grateful for the support of Sen. Henry, Rep. Gotto and Rep. West,” Stites said. “These men have worked for more than 70 years collectively to improve the city of Nashville and the State of Tennessee. I am honored by their faith in my ability and my goals for our city.”

Senator Doug Henry
“Josh Stites is an intelligent, honest and hardworking young man,” said Sen. Henry. “He has impressed me with his ability to work with folks from all political parties and philosophies. He will rise above politics to get things done for Nashville. I am honored to offer my endorsement of his candidacy. His ability to gain support from people on both sides of the aisle proves his value to Nashville on this council.”

Ben West
"Josh is the kind of person who runs for the Council not for political reasons but for the opportunity to serve his community,” said Rep. West. “I am impressed at his knowledge of government finances and I know from my 30 years of public service that his experience will be called upon often over the next four years. He will be a trusted voice in Metro's financial matters. Josh is one of the hardest working people I know and this district will be well-served by his energy and enthusiasm. I'm excited to endorse someone who I truly believe is the future of Nashville's leadership."
Rep. Jim Gotto

"Josh has the education, experience, and character to lead Metro through the difficult financial years ahead,” said Rep. Gotto. “He is a natural leader and a hard worker who will champion the needs of the 13th district on the Council."

Early voting begins in five runoff elections across Davidson County starting August 26th running through September 10th. Election Day is September 15th.
