Readers show support for City Council District 5 candidate Davis

Dear Editor, 

I first want to thank you for a focus on my neighborhood regarding our Council race and your support of Councilman Scott Davis.  He  has worked tireless for everyone in the district  and has provided through his bill that was passed one of life most precious commodities to many which is health care coverage.The GLBT community now can have a peace of mind knowing if they work  for Metro Government not only can they be covered under insurance but their partner can be as well. My family looks forward to a continue four more years of seeing this community progress, considering we have been here for over 100 years and seeing this community decline to such a low level in the past years , and to see it come up to this level is amazing. There are jobs that have been created by new business that he has engaged to relocate to District 5 with more to come such as Top Golf on Cowan St. Councilman Davis has been a strong advocate for keeping District 5 an affordable place to live with the development of projects with Urban Housing Solution and others that are being discussed for more to come. Councilman Davis sees the need to be engaged with everyone especially to a gentrifying neighborhoods such as the ones in District 5. 

I know both of the opponents and respect them both and what they would like to do, but the changing  of so much of the council along with Mayor and Vice Mayor our city will need senior leadership that  has served and knows how to lead and make sure everyone is involved in the processes that take place in their community. Nashville is at a point that experience is most important , Ms. Martin lacks that experience , being a co-char of a community group for a year and attending several Metro meeting is not the same as being in the council and involved with the many departments that you have to build relationships to serve effectively. Some of us would like for your readers to know we value our community and look forward to may years of progress.

WhistlePig + Alfa Romeo F1

SHOREHAM, VT (September 13, 2023) — WhistlePig Whiskey, the leaders in independent craft whiskey, and Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake are waving the checkered flag on a legend-worthy release that’s taking whiskey to G-Force levels. The Limited Edition PiggyBack Legends Series: Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is a high Rye Whiskey selected by the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake drivers, with barrels trialed in their wind tunnel to ensure a thrilling taste in every sip.

The third iteration in WhistlePig’s Single Barrel PiggyBack Legends Series, the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is bottled at 96.77 proof, a nod to Valtteri Bottas’ racing number, 77, and the precision of racing. Inspired by Zhou Guanyu, the first Chinese F1 driver, this Rye Whiskey is finished with lychee and oolong tea. Herbal and floral notes of the oolong tea complement the herbaceous notes of WhistlePig’s signature PiggyBack 100% Rye, rounded out with a juicy tropical fruit finish and a touch of spice.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
