Standing up to Trump
John Cooper wants to stay silent about some of the things that matter most.
Cooper recently told The Tennessean that “we shouldn’t forget what Metro can do by thinking we can solve some other problems that we’re not supposed to solve.”
While it’s true that a local government can’t always do what the federal government should be doing, a mayor does have to stand up and say what’s right and what’s wrong. Mayor Briley doesn’t let President Trump just say or do whatever he wants without pushing back and expressing Nashville’s values, because there’s too much at stake.
A woman’s right to make decisions about her own body.
Keeping assault rifles out of the hands of dangerous people.
The future of our planet.
Mayor Briley is the only candidate in this race we can count on to stand up for us, because he’s the only progressive in this race.
And don't take our word for it. Here are words you won't find in John Cooper's 47-page policy book: LGBT, Immigration, Climate, Gun Safety, Domestic Violence, Women's Health.
Let’s give Mayor Briley another four years to keep making Nashville a better place – and keep standing up for the values of a better world, too.
