The Nashville Business Alliance Political Action Committee has reportedly endorsed several candidates in advance of the Aug. 1 election.

This, according to The Nashville Business Journal, which reported the PAC has endorsed incumbent Mayor David Briley.

“It’s not surprising to see the group endorse Briley. Since taking over the office last year, the mayor has courted the support of the city’s business community, with several leading business voices among his largest campaign contributors,” The Nashville Business Journal reported.

“Briley also shepherded legislation earlier this year that overhauled Metro’s procurement process to make doing business with the city easier for minority- and women-owned businesses — a key issue for the political action committee.”

The website also reported that Tennessee State Rep. John Ray Clemmons, D-Nashville, At-Large Councilman John Cooper, and former Vanderbilt University professor Carol Swain are “credible opponents” to Briley.

The PAC reportedly advocates for women-and-minority-owned businesses.

The PAC also reportedly made other endorsements for the following seats:

• Incumbent Jim Shulman for vice mayor.

• Berkley Allen, Fabian Bedne, Sharon Hurt, Bob Mendes, and Zulfat Suara for Metro Council At-Large.

• Johnathan Hall for Council District 1

    I suspect that the Nashville Business Alliance Political Action Committee believes that Briley will continue to be the liberal pushover that bows to business interests at the cost to private citizens. the guy is a loser and should be booted from office.
