To the Editor:

I have had the privilege of knowing J. Edward Campbell for over 20 years, and in my personal opinion, he is the best choice for Ward 1 Alderman.

J. Edward has been a Franklin resident since 1976. When he moved to Franklin, he rolled up his sleeves and got involved because he loves Franklin. Over the years, J. Edward has served our community in various capacities: Vice-President of the Downtown Franklin Association, Chairman of the Franklin Housing Commission, board member of Franklin Tomorrow, and a graduate of Leadership Franklin.  J. Edward and his wife Brenda have been regular volunteers at Heritage Foundation of Franklin and Williamson County for many years.

As a licensed Tennessee Real Estate broker, J. Edward works with buyers and sellers of residential homes. He is not connected with any developers. If elected, you can be confident that his decisions will be based on what’s best for the residents of Ward 1 and other residents of Franklin without any conflict of interest. I appreciate his commitment to bring balance and focus to the issues that are most pressing: traffic, smart growth, building a healthy infrastructure, and finding housing solutions for our community. We need common sense leadership and practical solutions and J. Edward Campbell can deliver them.
