Perhaps more important, the Fox campaign announced having close to $1.14 million cash on hand in the bank. "The Fox campaign is right where we hoped we would be. Halfway to our campaign budget of $3.5 million. Check. Over $1 million cash on hand. Check. Now at 20,000 neighborhood door knocks and counting, while setting the pace on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Check. We also added in a few hundred cell phone ‘speed dates,’ which was fun. People seem to love those. The Fox train is really rollin’,” said campaign CEO Chris Turner.
Fox has built his campaign around the theme of protecting what he calls, our "Nashville Way," the "special sauce" that makes Nashville the friendliest and best city in America. "The Nashville Way is not just a quality of life, it's a way of life and it's under severe strain right now. Folks are honking their horns more on the roads. The public square is not always as civil as it used to be. Our streets are getting clogged, water mains are breaking, schools are filling up, crime's affecting too many of our neighbors, and our city's debt problem limits what we can do about these things. Because of all this, people I talk to are just feeling stressed. We're at a 'fight for it' or 'lose to forever moment,'" says Fox.
"This campaign is about beating the odds and growing our city while maintaining and hopefully strengthening our Nashville Way. Together we can do this," said Fox.
