Election Commission to hear residency challenge to Bill Beck running in District 51.

Bill Beck
At a special called meeting of the Davidson County Election Commission tomorrow, the Commission will be considering a residency challenge to the candidacy of Bill Beck who is seeking the Democrat nomination for the 51st House District seat.

District 51 is the House District seat being held by Mike Turner who is not seeking reelection. Other Democrats seeking that nomination are Jennifer Buck Wallace, former executive director of the Tennessee Democratic Party, and Stephen Fotopulos, the former Tennessee Immigrant & Refugee Rights Coalition executive director. Wallace has the endorsement of Craig Fitzhugh, the State House Minority Leader.  Beck, a local attorney, has the support of former Nashville Mayor Bill Purcell, Sheriff Daron Hall, former Senator Joe Haynes and former Judge Barbara Haynes.

In the Republican primary, Brian L. Mason and Joshua Rawlings are competing for the nomination. I do not know who filed the challenge. The Election Commission meets Wednesday, June 18th at 3PM at the Davidson County Election Commission offices at 1417 Murfreesboro Pike.
