Rep. Gotto Draws Democratic Opponent

Darren Jernigan, a Metro councilman whose District 11 includes parts of Old Hickory and Hermitage, tells The City Paper he plans to run as a Democrat for the state House District 60 seat currently held by Republican Jim Gotto.
“Becoming a state representative gives me the opportunity to expand my passion for public service beyond the local level,” said Jernigan, who recently appointed a treasurer for his campaign with the Davidson County Election Commission.
Prior to the state’s redistricting, Jernigan’s residence was in state Rep. Mike Turner’s District 51
