Nashville neighborhood group backs John Cooper for Mayor

The Nashville Neighborhood Defense Fund endorsed Metro Councilman John Cooper in the race for mayor, upping his credibility with voters focused on neighborhood issues.

Cooper said when he entered the mayor’s race that he believes the city has focused too much on big-ticket development projects and not enough on improving neighborhoods.

In a press release Monday, Cooper said that as mayor he would “ensure that we prioritize neighborhood investments and that means building sidewalks, improving stormwater, increasing livability and working on transportation.”
