We are fortunate in Nashville to have people who work tirelessly to improve the community in which we live. Burkley Allen is simply one of those people. Through my terms on the Metro Council, I could always count on Burkley to step up and provide sound guidance and leadership. Burkley is the type of person that I believe we all want and need on Metro Council.

Jim Shulman, Vice Mayor
