Nominee for 12South NA Board: Kerry Conley

About Kerry:
“I have been in 12th South almost 10 years ago due to the diversity, historical homes, walk ability & local businesses.  I’m for growth that fits within the scale, character and prioritizes the safety of our neighborhood and where the local businesses and residents work as a team. Currently I work for a local Nashville Education Non-Profit, The PENCIL Foundation. I created the Fido Alert to report lost or found animals in our neighborhood. I would love to see 12th South be a community where everyone is heard & properly informed of what is going on, while preserving its unique character.”

Nominee for 12South NA Board: Daina Storey

About Daina:
“Drawn to the character and diversity of 12th South, Daina Storey moved to the neighborhood in 2006. Since then, she has seen a lot of growth and change. It’s because of these changes Daina has become active in the community to ensure the voices of her neighbors are heard. Daina knows change is inevitable, but believes there can be progress without losing the neighborhood’s unique character and history. As a proponent of responsible development and progress, she is proud to live here and would be proud to represent her neighbors as a member of the 12th South Neighborhood Association.”
