Re-Elect Lisa Garramone for Nolensville Commissioner

Experienced Leadership for Nolensville's Future

I'm Commissioner Lisa Garramone- and I'm ready to lead Nolensville for the next four years by continuing the work I've already begun. With a focus on improving traffic flow, thoughtfully managing town growth, and increasing public safety- my track record speaks for itself. 

I'm asking for your vote on November 8.

My Priorities

There are numerous issues facing our growing town. While we can't solve them all at once, we can make progress by prioritizing the most important ones. Here are the main priorities I focused on during my first term, and will continue to focus on during my second term:

Traffic Flow Improvements

We all know how hard it can be to turn left on Nolensville Road- or how overwhelming school traffic can be at times. We've begun working toward adding a dedicated turning lane to most of Nolensville road, as well as other traffic improvement measures. I'd like to continue that work into my second term.

Managed Growth

We all know growth is inevitable. My goal is not to stop growth- there's a reason so many people want to move to our wonderful town. My goal is to continue to partner with the town to find ways to manage the growth, so that infrastructure is not further strained, and a property tax increase is not necessary. 

Public Safety

Even before I was elected to the Board of Commissioners, I worked with the Town to install traffic calming measures on several key roads in Nolensville, and in my first term I continued that work to expand public safety in other areas. Thanks to the hard work of many folks in Nolensville, we now have lower speed limits, speed humps, and crosswalks installed in many of the most-needed areas of town. But there's much work left to be done...

Collaboration with You

In my professional career, and my time as Nolensville Commissioner, I work hard to collaborate with people representing many different viewpoints. No decision is as simple as black or white; and while there may not always be a perfect solution to every problem- I believe in seeking input from many different sources and working to make the best decisions for as many people as possible.
