Born in Jackson, Tennessee, Dupree moved to Nashville fourteen years ago as a student at Tennessee State University. “Everyone has a duty to serve, to give back to the community that nurtured and prepared them to succeed; which is why it would be an honor to serve North Nashville,” Dupree said. “I believe Public Safety and Economic Growth are key issues for District 21. We need to make sure that our local businesses have sustainable support and new businesses have the confidence to not only open but thrive.”
Prior to working for the Department of General Services, Dupree worked for the Tennessee General Assembly as a Senate Aide mostly addressing constituent issues. Dupree sits on the YMCA Black Achievers Board and serves as a council member for The Tennessee Chapter of the American Society for Public Administration.
Dupree recently appointed Nashville businessman, Deddrick A. Perry, Jr. as her treasurer.
