 Sign Our Petition 

I am saddened by the passing of Sumner County Board of Education Member Mrs. Patricia Brown. After an extensive career in education, including over thirty years in the Sumner County School System, Mrs. Brown served on the school board from 2014 through 2023. I am grateful for her dedication to our students, our teachers, and our county.

The Sumner County Commission will meet on the evening of Monday, February 27 at the Sumner County Administration Building at 7:00 PM to vote on a School Board Member to fill the remainder of Ms. Patricia Brown's term representing District 9. We believe our commission will listen to the people and make the right decision, but we need your help encouraging them to do so.


How can you help?

  1. Send an email to your county commissioners asking them to vote for Ms. Roxie Kelsey for School Board District 9. You can find a complete list of commissioners, including email addresses, here:

  2. Show up at the County Commission Meeting on Monday, February 27th at 6:30 PM. The meeting starts at 7:00, but we expect a large crowd so arriving early makes it more likely you can get in the chambers (instead of sitting outside in the hallway). This meeting will be held at the Sumner County Administration Building (355 Belvedere Dr N, Gallatin, TN 37066).

  3. Tell your friends! Whether they get involved by emailing their commissioners, showing up at the meeting, or even sharing on social media, help us spread the word.

Sign Our Petition:

In August of 2022, three individuals ran to represent the citizens of District 9 on the Sumner County Board of Education: Mrs. Patricia Brown, Mr. Josh Graham, and Mrs. Roxie Kelsey. Mrs. Brown received a majority of the votes and stepped into her role. With the unfortunate passing of Mrs. Brown, we request the appointment of the candidate with the second-highest number of votes, Mrs. Roxie Kelsey, to fill the remainder of Mrs. Brown's term.

Do you agree? Sign the petition below and let your County Commission know that you support the appointment of Roxie Kelsey to represent District 9 on the Sumner County Board of Education. This petition will be presented to the Sumner County Commission on Monday, February 27th at 7:00 PM during their special called meeting.

Want to join us? Meet us at the Sumner County Administration Building (355 N Belvedere Dr, Gallatin, TN 37066) at 6:30 PM to show your support. We’ll see you there!
