NASHVILLE, TN — Bob Freeman, a real estate professional and son of prominent Tennessee Democratic donor Bill Freeman, is considering running in 2018 for the House seat being vacated by Republican House Speaker Beth Harwell, a candidate for governor.

Freeman, 42, said he’s been encouraged by family, friends and neighbors about running for House District 56,  that includes Green Hills,  Belle Meade, Oak Hill and Forest Hills.

Bob Freeman said he plans to have “real conversations with Independents, Republicans and Democrats” in the coming weeks before making a final decision.

…”While this district has been served with distinction for nearly three decades, I look forward to learning what the community seeks in its next leader.”

Bob Freeman is vice president of real estate investment and development with Forestar Group Inc. and  co-founder of Freeman Applegate Partners, an energy consulting and sustainable construction firm.
