Fabian Bedne Announces Candidacy for Metro Council

Fabian Bedne, residential designer and small business owner, launched his campaign today for Metro Council’s District 31, a seat being vacated by current Metro Councilman Parker Toler who is term-limited. Bedne named Attorney Bob Tuke as his campaign treasurer. Others who have agreed to serve on his advisory council include Cristina Allen, Richard Courtney, Dr. Nedra Huggins-Williams, Reverend David Kidd, Pam Kidd, John Little, Tom Negri, Avi Poster, Attorney Gregg Ramos, Attorney Martin Sir, Kathleen Egerton Harkey, Linda McFadyen-Ketchum, Renata Soto, Chris McCarthy and Alma Sanford, J.D.

Bedne said:
Today represents a true highlight in my life as I am joined by family, friends and supporters as I announce my candidacy for District 31. This district has continued to develop sustainable growth areas and has become a model on how to eat, work and play right in your own neighborhood and it’s a place that has been wonderful to raise my family.
I look forward to meeting new friends in the district and serving as a voice to the Metropolitan Government on how we want our neighborhood to develop. Neighbors from Brentwood and Lenox Village, to Cane Ridge and Antioch are all supporting my campaign.
Bedne and his family have lived in Davidson County for fifteen years, including thirteen years in District 31 and he currently operates his own business here. He was until recently, a Commissioner with the Davidson County Board of Zoning Appeals, and currently serves on the advisory board of the Nashville Area Habitat for Humanity, on the Board of the Housing Fund, and Community Nashville, and on the Davidson County Leadership Council of the "Communities Putting Prevention to Work." He is also the chair of the Beautification Committee of his home subdivision.

District 31 spans parts of southeast Davidson County and includes the neighborhoods of Brentwood, Nipper’s Corner, Lenox Village, Cane Ridge, and portions of Antioch. The district borders are Old Hickory Boulevard and Hill Road to the north, interstate 65 to the west, interstate 24 to the east, and the Davidson County line to the south. The election for the District 31 council seat will be held next year in August 2011.

Bedne is married to Mary-Linden Salter. They have two children who attend Oliver Middle School and Martin Luther King Magnet School
