Sam Davidson's blog

Every Tuesday, I write.

I share an idea I’ve come up with, a struggle I’m wrestling with, a puzzle I’m turning over in my head, or a story that I think the world needs to hear. You can sign up to get these emailed to you each Tuesday morning by clicking here

On Thursdays, I write at Batch about a business idea or concept, usually through the lens of my day-to-day work as co-founder and CEO or from the viewpoint and lessons learned of our purveyors. Follow along here

On LinkedIn and Twitter I often toss out quick thoughts and ideas that aren’t ready for longer posts just yet or something that I’m seeking feedback on. 

If you'd like to get more ideas like these sent to you each day, it's easy: sign up here.


 

A Remarkable Mayor

I'm voting for Briley.

But if I weren't, I'd change my vote. No other candidate in this election is as smart as Briley is.

And I'm not talking about having cool commercials or being politically slick. Spend a half hour (you can do it - just skip that Fresh Prince rerun) on Briley's YouTube channel and watch some footage of him at community forums and meetings. His answers are exactly what Nashville needs going forward.

There is no shortage of political leadership that is clueless. Most of us who grew up watching TV have forgotten what it's like to see intelligent people talk intelligently about anything. Briley is a refreshing option for a Nashville that stands at a crucial crossroads between becoming its own great city. It can become as unique as Portland, Denver or Austin. Or it can become just another Atlanta, St. Louis, or Detroit.

Watch the videos and listen to the answers. You'll be impressed.
