Nashville D-A Straw Poll Results - 04/04/14
It's far from a scientific poll, but if Nashville's political crowd is representative of the rest of the city, Glenn Funk will be metro's next District Attorney. Funk, a veteran prosecutor and defense attorney with nearly 30-years of experience, won Thursday night's straw poll at the "Not So Sure Shot Rabbit Hunter's Supper" at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds.
Around seven hundred people attended the dinner, most of them politically "tuned In." Funk received 63.41-percent of the vote in the straw poll. That's almost twice as many votes as opponents Rob McGuire (24.39%) and Diane Lance (12.20%) received combined. I don't live in Davidson County so I don't have a vested interested in the race. That said, I've spent a lot of time in Nashville courtrooms and understand how important this position in. Whomever you like, get out there and cast your vote.
