Bill Beck to run for TN State House District 51

INGLEWOOD-NASHVILLE PRESS, March 23, 2014: Inglewood attorney, Bill Beck, used a popular social media outlet to broadcast news about opening a new chapter of public service this past Friday. "Today, my birthday has been a 'banner day' in more ways than one! On March 21, 2014, I made my run for a seat on the Tennessee House of Representatives official by filing a petition with the Davidson County Election Commission. I?m telling you, it can?t get any better than that! I'm having a great day celebrating both my years already lived and a new day looking forward to serving the great people of District 51!"

"To say that my heart and soul is given over to this Middle Tennessee area may sound a little on the poetic side, but it is certainly the truth," Beck says. Beck brings with him a strong history of business development and civic service already in House District 51 (specifically in Madison, Inglewood, and downtown Nashville). Currently an attorney in practice with his mother, Martha Cone Beck, he also worked in the home building and real estate businesses, oftentimes with his father, Robert Beck Sr., for several years prior.

As a community activist, Beck served in various leadership roles on numerous Boards of Directors, including Discover Madison, Inc. - Amqui Station, the Madison-Rivergate Area Chamber of Commerce, Allegro School of Music, and the Kiwanis Club of Madison TN, with most of his focus placed on community enhancement and education of our youth. He continues to be both a member of the aforementioned organizations, as well as an active supporter of the Nashville Chamber of Commerce, the Inglewood Homeowner's Association, Shelby Little League, FiftyForward - Madison, Martha O'Bryan Community Center, Madison Little League, Nashville Mission, and the Madison Christian Cooperative.

Looking forward to a campaign that will take him into the primary elections on August 7, then to the general election on November 4, Beck has appointed a treasurer who also has an invested interest in Inglewood and East Nashville. Lisa McCauley founded, and continues to serve as editor of, The East Nashvillian magazine, a publication that puts the spotlight on one of the most forward-moving communities in House District 51, which also covers Old Hickory and Germantown.

"My goal is to both honor the good work that has already been done by past District 51 Representatives and to introduce new ways of making positive impacts on the lives of individuals and families who live and/or work in the district," says Beck, "and I want people around me who share that vision."
