In the races for District Council, who has the money and where did it come from (Part 2)

by Rod Williams - Below is information gleamed from an examination of Financial Disclosure forms filed with the Davidson County Election Commission. In listing who contributed to whose campaign, I listed those names that I recognized. I do not know everybody. There are many people in Nashville who are better informed than I about who the movers and shakers and influencers are. To view the campaign disclosures for yourself, follow this link
Those candidates who did not file a report were not required to because they had not appointed a campaign treasures in the first quarter and have not raised or spent money.   This is part 2 of this report. To see part 1, follow this link.
