Outgoing at-large Metro Councilman Buck Dozier, who placed fourth in the general mayoral election Aug. 2, said this morning he will not endorse either Bob Clement or Karl Dean in the mayoral runoff.
Withholding his direct support from either candidate, Dozier follows the lead of fellow mayoral hopefuls David Briley and Howard Gentry.
“After prayerful consideration I have decided not to endorse either of the two mayoral candidates in this current runoff election,” Dozier said in a prepared statement.
“Over the past year I have grown to respect both men for their commitment to public service and for their sincere desire to make our city an even better place to live and work.”
“Nashville would be well served by either of these gentlemen as Mayor.”
