The Bill Freeman for Mayor Campaign recently surpassed its 200,000th door knock of the campaign.
“Our Field Team has worked so hard this entire campaign, and we are now seeing the unprecedented results,” said Bill Freeman. “We could not have knocked on 200,000 doors of Davidson County residents without the unwavering support of our volunteers. They go out every single day of the week and talk with people about the future of Nashville, and I could not be more thankful for them.”
Bill marked this occasion by knocking on doors with one of the campaign’s most loyal volunteers, Vionne Williams, who has been volunteering for the campaign for months because of something Bill did for her and her family years ago. Vionne’s family was displaced during Hurricane Katrina, and during their time of need, Bill’s company Freeman Webb stepped up and provided housing for them.
“I will never forget Mr. Freeman’s great act of kindness in our family’s time of need,” said Ms. Williams. “I think he’s down to earth and he has done a lot for a lot of people and the communities here in Nashville. He showed me the type of person that he is. He just picked up and got things taken care of. We believe he is the best candidate for the job.”
“During my time in the NFL I learned what it takes to build a successful team, and the Freeman team is certainly one of the most dedicated and hardworking teams I have had the pleasure to be on,” said Cortland Finnegan, former Titans Cornerback and Freeman for Mayor host committee member.
“We have always been committed to talking with as many Davidson County residents as possible before Election Day,” said Freeman. “I want to hear about the issues that concern them. I will carry this desire to remain connected with the citizens of Nashville with me into the mayor’s office.”
“Our volunteers are so dedicated and passionate, and I think that comes across clearly when you look at how much we’ve been able to do in just three months,” said Cyrus Shick, Freeman for Mayor field director. “We are more focused than ever on bringing this race home and making sure that Bill Freeman becomes the next mayor of Nashville.” Bill Freeman is the co-founder and current chairman of Freeman Webb, Inc. real estate management company.
