Why I'm Running

Just like my father and his father before him, I joined the Navy because I had a duty to serve. A half dozen deployments spent fighting for people around the world and more than a decade later, I came back to Tennessee to find that nobody had been fighting for us. For too long we’ve been ignored by a rigged system full of politicians that listen only to wealthy donors, and not concerns from our communities. Tennessee needs a change. This year, working class people in District 19 will have a choice for the first time in 16 years. Vote for Progress. Vote Edward Nelson.
