Fran Bush endorses Alice Rolli: “I’m proud to endorse Alice Rolli for Mayor. Alice and I share a great deal in our concerns for the safety of our children and the need for SROs in every MNPS school. We believe in the power of early literacy to change educational outcomes. We want to support parents in making the best choice for their children’s education. Alice’s inclusive style of leadership is what we need to bring to the Mayor’s office to ensure our city is strong in all neighborhoods and to build an improved foundation for our families and for our future.”
Community Leaders of America, the home of the national forum of Republican mayors, city councilmembers, and county leaders, recently endorsed Republican mayoral candidate Alice Rolli as the next mayor of Nashville.
“Alice Rolli represents the best of what Republican leaders offer – pragmatic solutions, fiscal conservatism, and a drive to create opportunities for all. We are confident that, as Mayor, Alice will ensure public safety, champion civil liberties, and protect taxpayer resources with a common-sense approach,” the organization released in a statement.
In this broken world, let us ask what we are doing, every day, to reduce the number of victims of crime across our city – from literacy to mental health support to investing in our public safety.
Alice Rolli knows she has an uphill climb as a Republican in a very Democratic city, but the business owner and former political strategist for Lamar Alexander sees an opening between Mayor John Cooper’s record property tax hike and lingering perceptions about crime. The last Republican to make it as far as a runoff — David Fox in 2015 — is acting as an advisor and treasurer for Rolli’s campaign. As a native Nashvillian and the daughter of Al Ganier, Rolli is banking on deep ties to the city to lure independent and Democratic voters to her campaign.

“I see, and I hear, that while Nashville may be a party for our visitors — it isn’t a party for everyone who lives here,” Rolli said in a statement. “Our young families and our most vulnerable neighbors are struggling.” “I hear that with this election we can choose to welcome visitors but insist — at every turn — that the needs of our people, our safety, our infrastructure, and our children’s education — comes first.”

Rolli announced her campaign Friday, joining a growing list of candidates to launch mayoral runs after sitting Nashville Mayor John Cooper revealed he would not seek a second term. “This is a campaign about listening to residents across the county and together setting priorities for our city’s next chapter,” Rolli said in a statement announcing her mayoral bid.
