Nashville is sadly on its way to becoming another Memphis. The locusts who have infiltrated Tennessee (particularly Nashville) from other high-tax, high-crime jurisdictions around the country want to change Tennessee into the failed, “progressive” hellholes from which they fled. The best we can hope for is that the increased crime will be contained within Nashville and won’t spread beyond the city limits.
This won't happened in Nashville and not all progressives are like this. What I like about Freddie is that he's the best kind of "progressive" or good human being: one that has vision but is also laser-focused on government effectiveness/service delivery. He really cares about government operations and the customer/resident experience.

This is what a lot of my progressive friends and aspiring politicians miss when transitioning from campaigning to governing. It ain't Freddie - he gets it and will be wonderful for my hometown.

He also represents the type of local we've been talking about in this thread for years (if I still lived in Nashville, I would be this person) - who isn't welded to this pop country version of Nashville that's been marketed around the country and understands how multi-faceted the city is IRL. For example, Freddie used to visit the Fisk University (HBCU) art gallery as a kid and his dad played jazz and blues records on Fisk's radio station. Freddie is Nashville through and through.
