Nelson Andrews, president of Andrews Cadillac and Jaguar Land Rover Nashville, confirmed with the Herald that he is “looking carefully into what it would take to run a successful campaign” for the Brentwood City Commission.
Candidates seeking to run for open commission seats can turn in their petitions starting Monday, Dec. 27.
Issues that are important to Andrews include Brentwood’s green space and maintaining residential character.
“I feel that it’s important for Brentwood to maintain and grow its green space,” he said. “I think Brentwood being able to continue to maintain the residential character of the community while supporting its business community in a way that respects the boundaries is very important.”
Andrews pointed to his business experience and being a longtime resident in the city as reasons he is considering running.
“I feel that living and working here and being involved in the community both through civic work and business, that I have both the experience and the skill to really add something to the city,” he said.
With the city of Brentwood celebrating its 50th birthday, Andrews also said this is an important time in its history.
“I feel that it’s an important time in the city, in that Brentwood is celebrating its 50th anniversary,” he said. “We’ve benefited tremendously from experienced leadership.”
Andrews is currently a member of the Brentwood Morning Rotary Club and the Ravenwood Red Zone Football Booster club. He is a former board member of the Williamson Business PAC and Williamson Inc.
