Nashville, TN – Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam and Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman announced 168 schools as the 2013-14 Reward Schools, the top 5 percent of schools in the state for academic achievement and the top 5 percent for annual growth.
The Reward Schools span 49 districts across Tennessee and include 90 schools that serve mostly economically disadvantaged populations.
Turnout appears light with roughly 11,000 people voting in the early voting, and multiple precincts reporting extremely light turnout today. “I am ashamed to tell you how many people we had vote today,” said poll worker Nancy Chambers, before revealing that only 21 people had turned out to vote at Smith school by 9:00am. Results at the other polling places were similar.

Candidate for Clarksville City Council – Ward 9.
Clarksville, TN – There has been an overwhelming amount of media concerning Ward 9 this year which has been generally negative, and I find that disappointing. Ward 9’s new boundaries provide an amazing cross-section of Clarksville, and epitomizes the qualities that are unique and special about our community.
I contend that Ward 9 represents the heart of Clarksville between it’s new and expanding development, in addition to the renovation of existing and established neighborhoods. There are four candidates that each have unique backgrounds and experiences to bring to our City, and I am proud there is such a high level of interest in making our City the best it can be.
