MADISON, TN — After decades of service to the Madison-Rivergate Area Chamber of Commerce, most recently serving as Ex-Officiating Officer of Economic and Community Development Chair, Nathan Massey submitted his resignation of the Chair’s position.
“I am grateful to have served the Madison-Rivergate Area Chamber of Commerce for the betterment of our Madison community,” Massey stated. “I am grateful for the support and commitment that we have received from Mayor Megan Barry for the Neely’s Bend Road Extension as well as our successful campaign to get Nashville State Community College to commit to a Madison Campus. It is my hope that the board will continue to support Nashville State, the Neely’s Bend Extension project and the youth in Madison. I look forward to future involvement in our community.”
“Nathan has served the Madison-Rivergate Chamber with distinction for the past 15 years. He has devoted his knowledge, skills, and abilities to promote a better quality of life for the Madison community,” stated Brian Johnson, Deputy Chief of Police, Metro Nashville. “His passion to make a positive impact required countless hours and unmatched enthusiasm, resulting in making the Madison community a stronger and better place. Nathan was instrumental in saving and bringing Amqui Station back to Madison and also in obtaining a brand new police precinct built to specifically serve the Madison-Rivergate area. Nathan’s efforts have also led to the recently funded Neely’s Bend Road Extension. The Madison community will benefit for many, many years to come due to his efforts.”
