Casada campaign literature hits mailboxes in Williamson County

Early voting for primaries in local races is nine days away, so voters’ mailboxes are getting inundated with campaign literature. In Williamson County, that includes a glossy item from state Rep. Glen Casada (R-Franklin), who is running for clerk.

Needless to say, the mailer makes no mention of Casada’s spectacular fall from the House speakership in 2019, or the ongoing federal probe into a shadowy mail vendor. Former Rep. Robin Smith (R-Hixson) in her recent guilty plea said she, Casada, and his onetime chief of staff Cade Cothren were secretly involved in establishing and promoting a company called Phoenix Solutions that landed business from the General Assembly and lawmakers.

Casada’s mailer features photos of his children and grandchildren. He touts his membership in the Brentwood Baptist Church and says he “started two successful small businesses.”

We assume the latter isn’t referring to Phoenix Solutions.
