Unofficial Election Results – Thurs, Aug 6, 2015

rsz_headshot_2011-06_img_2126Shortly after 10 PM, the final precinct in Davidson County was tallied.  One precinct in our district was one of the last 20 (out of 161) to be tallied, so although it was pretty clear by 8:00 or 8:30 PM that we were in a tough position, we did make up ground with the final precinct.  The Election Commission still needs to complete the process to make things official, I have little doubt these results will stand.  Although I won the election day voting 607-553 and the Absentee voting 7-5, I could not overcome the deficit that was announced after the polls closed with the early voting results, with Mr Swope taking the early vote 1102-820.  The final tally is 1,660 (53%) for Mr. Swope vs 1,434 (46%) for myself (plus 11 write-in ballots) for a total of 3,105 votes.  This compares favorably to 4 years ago when 6 candidates garnered a total of 2,270 votes.

There will be a run-off election on Sept 10 for Mayor (between Megan Barry and David Fox); and for all five of the Council at-large positions (Karen Bennett, Erin Coleman, John Cooper, Robert Duvall, Erica Gilmore, Jason Holleman, Sharon Hurt, Lonnell Matthews, Bob Mendes, & Jim Shulman).  Anyone who is not yet registered to vote, may do so by August 11 to be eligible to vote in the run-off on Sept 10.

I appreciate all the support and positive messages I received during the campaign and look forward to seeing all of you at various neighborhood and area meetings (or the grocery store) in the coming weeks, months, and years.

Peter Tuttle is first candidate to qualify for August ballot

Peter Tuttle is the first candidate to qualify for the ballot in the upcoming August 2015 election for Metro rsz_headshot_2011-06_img_2126Council in District 4.  Tuttle’s qualifying petition was verified by the Election Commission on Monday, March 16.

Peter Tuttle is a long-time Nashville resident, moving from Franklin to Nashville in 1988.

Peter and his wife met at an MTSU football tailgate alumni lunch and now live in Bradford Hills, between Nolensville Road and Edmondson Pike.  Their two adult children also live, work, and play in Nashville!

He has been active in community and local business and professional organizations over the past 29 years in Nashville.  He is a graduate of the Metro Police Citizens Police Academy, is a current participant in the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood’s Leadership Training.  He attends and participates in local public meetings regarding infrastructure and zoning, including the Nolensville Rd expansion project, the joint Metro/City of Brentwood study of the Old Hickory Blvd and Maryland Way/Church St / Cloverland corridor, Flood Mitigation meetings, and the Holt Rd apartment zoning meetings in 2012. He  served for many years on the TN/CPA-IRS Tax Liaison committee and the TN/CPA-State Dept of Revenue Liaison committee.  Tuttle was a 12-year board member of the Nashville Ski Club and served 3 terms as President.  He was active with the  Blind Skier Program which funds activities for local school students.

Tuttle will also use his knowledge of neighborhood issues gleaned from serving on the board of the Bradford Hills HOA.  He is currently serving as President of the 547 member Bradford Hills HOA.  He is an original Titans PSL owner and is a Day-One Predators Season Ticket holder.

Prior to moving to Middle Tennessee he was involved as a volunteer as a United Way Loaned Executive, a volunteer firefighter,  member of the underwater recovery team, and served as an alumni volunteer to both his college fraternity and to other chapters in the same district.  Peter earned the Eagle Scout rank as a member of the Boy Scouts.

Peter is an Independent Insurance agent and has a sole-proprietorship CPA business limited to tax which has been his profession for the past 20+ years.  Prior to that, he was a Business Manager for a Fortune 500 company in multiple cities.  That position brought him to work in Nashville in February 1986.  Nashville’s hospitality and the people often reminded him of his maternal grandmother who grew up in a small town outside of Newnan, Georgia.

District 4 is in southern Davidson County.  Starting at the county line at I-65 in Brentwood, the district runs southeast along the Williamson/Davidson line to Nolensville Rd, then north on Nolensville Rd to Old Hickory Blvd.  Turn west and follow OHB until Nipper’s Corner and turn north on Edmondson Pike for approximately one-half mile where it turns west and north again for one-quarter mile along Seven-Mile Creek.  It then runs roughly west towards Hill Rd to I-65 and then south to the county line at Brentwood.
