Why I’m Running Cole D. Rogers is asking for your support as he runs for District 7 Metro Council on a platform committed to helping preserve the vibrant, diverse culture of our community while continuing to evolve with greater Nashville’s growth. Cole believes, a strong community requires a strong education system in order to reach its full potential. That means fully funding our schools to ensure our children are receiving a high-quality education and our teachers and staff are being compensated for their hard work. Cole believes a connected neighborhood requires streets and public parks that are safe and accessible to its people. Cole will work diligently to identify public areas that need improvement and will commit to executing these improvements. Cole believes that an effective council-member requires the insight and guidance of his/her neighbors. Cole will be committed in accomplishing this through collaboration and impactful communication with the community and its stakeholders.
