Linda Eskind Rebrovick
I am voting for Linda in the current election for Mayor of Nashville/Davidson County.
We all know that this vote will not elect the next Mayor but will decide the two candidates for the run-off. Nashville vitally needs Linda to be in that final discernment of who we need and want as our next mayor.
I will do another posting or two between now and the election to share with you some of my personal perspectives on Nashville and the importance of our leadership at this time. For now let me share just a couple of things.
We are blessed with seven exemplary candidates who want to be our Mayor. I know a few of them well and the rest by reputation, endorsements of people that I respect a great deal, and by their conduct in the campaign to date. Nashville is truly in a flow of abundance and this slate of candidates is a reflection of those blessings
After Hillsboro High School, the University of Texas and beginning my career at the First American Nashville Bank in 1968 my primary focus has been finance, real estate and information technology. I met Linda in the late 1990s when she was a partner at KPMG and have watched her evolve steadily and ‘smartly’ since that time. I have known her husband, Art, from two decades earlier and interfaced on occasion as he has grown a well-respected management consulting business. The Eskind and Rebrovick family roots in Nashville are deep indeed. What is unique is to see traditional deep rootedness manifest vibrant, live and current thinkers versed and engaged in the dynamics of our now emerged connection economy.
The primary issues that we all have today, including those of community infrastructure management, will not be solved with insular homegrown ideas. Linda lives and dwells in that broader landscape of ideas and actions. She will bring energy and innovation to the next stage of Nashville as a national and global leadership hub.
