NASHVILLE, TN — Robert Taylor has announced his candidacy for School Board District 1.

Metro Nashville Public Schools has undergone rapid change in the year. As our school system improves and continues to grow, the families deserve a representative who will work on their behalf to navigate the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.

Mr. Taylor was the Program Manager for the New Life Program, a comprehensive Fatherhood

program at the Metro Public Health Department (MPHD) of Nashville Davidson County.
