Dean visits Warren County
Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Karl Dean speaks with County Commissioner Tommy Savage as Chris Slaughter listens in during the former Nashville mayors recent meeting with area nurserymen.
Touting his experience in leading a major metropolitan city into its new renaissance, former Nashville Mayor Karl Dean made a swing into Warren County last week, saying he wants to bring his leadership acumen to the Capitol Hill as governor of Tennessee.“I care about our state and love public service,” Dean said in an interview with the Southern Standard at the Chamber of Commerce, noting he is middle-of-the road and is willing to reach across the aisle to work with both Republicans and Democrats. “It’s not about party. It is about getting things done and to do that, you need everyone working together.”The Democratic hopeful pointed out he was confronted with the worst recession since the Great Depression when he first took office in 2007 as mayor of Nashville.
