Message from the Mayor

Good evening. Tonight I’d like to pay tribute to the life of Mayor Richard Fulton, who died Wednesday, November 28, at the age of ninety one.

Mayor Fulton was a giant. During his three terms as mayor, from 1975 to 1987, he changed our city from Antioch to Bordeaux and from Bellevue to Old Hickory.

He did some things everyone knows about, like the first downtown convention center and Riverfront Park.

But he also did some things that, while not as well known, had more of an impact on people’s daily lives, like extending sewer and fire service across Davidson County.

Mayor Fulton paid attention to the details. He took notes as he drove around the city, and his department heads quickly learned what he had seen – and they knew what they needed to fix and improve so that Nashvillians would get the services they deserved.

Mayor Fulton also saw the big picture. He knew Nashville needed to make Lower Broadway and Second Avenue more attractive and needed to pay attention to the riverfront, because those places were the front doors to the city. And if they didn’t look good, it would be much harder to bring people in.

The Nashville we see today would not be what it is without Mayor Fulton’s vision, his political will and his hard work.

Even before he was elected mayor, Richard Fulton proved himself to be a public servant for the ages. As Nashville’s Congressman, he had the courage to take politically risky votes for people who didn’t look like him.

He voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and then the Voting Rights Act of 1965. It’s painful to think about how many Southern Democrats voted against those reforms at that time in our nation’s troubled history, but Richard Fulton stood out.

He voted to expand freedom, not restrict it.

He voted to include more people in the work of democracy rather than continuing to exclude them.

He voted to fulfill America’s promise, not deny it.

I was a small child when Congressman Fulton was taking those votes. By the time I reached college age, he was in his second term as Mayor, and he was kind enough to bring me into his office as an intern.

That was my first opportunity to get involved in government and see how it worked up close. I’ll never forget what I learned about leadership and building a better city.

I’ll never forget the example set by Mayor Fulton, who loved this city so much – and never stopped working to make it the best it could be for all Nashvillians.

Thank you.

Mayor David Briley
