Priorities Back to BasicsMatt will focus first on making sure that basic city services are taken care of – on time, every time. Invest in NeighborhoodsGreat neighborhoods are what make cities great. Nashville has some incredible neighborhoods that make the harmony here, and for too long too much of the city’s attention has been on downtown. Affordable HousingThe rising cost of housing is making Nashville unaffordable for many people. The simple fact is that Nashville is not creating enough housing for the demand our city is experiencing. EducationIn America we believe in equality of opportunity. The key to each person in our community having an equal shot at the American dream is having high-quality schools. Public SafetyEvery Nashvillian across our county deserves to feel safe. Protecting communities is the most fundamental responsibility of local government. Transit & InfrastructureFirst and foremost, we should make the roads we have more drivable by filling the potholes. We also should make our roads more efficient by doing a better job of synchronizing lights to traffic flow.
