Lindsey SmithBob Mendes Council-At-Large Campaign, Campaign Manager
Lindsey is a young professional and dedicated community organizer that was born and raised in Nashville, TN.
She graduated from the University of Kentucky in 2016 with her Bachelor’s degree in Integrated Strategic Communication where she studied Public Relations and Marketing.
During her undergraduate career, Lindsey wanted to enhance her college experience abroad in the United Kingdom by studying International Media and Communication at Kings College London. While there, she visited the British Parliament—which initially sparked her interest in the political process. After graduating, she returned to Nashville where she became a legal assistant at the law firm Butler Snow LLP. As a legal assistant, Lindsey was inspired by the government relations department and decided to pursue her political curiosities. In 2017, she was strongly influenced by the Women’s March on Washington to get more involved in her community. Later that year, she became a member of the Davidson County Young Democrats. She wanted to influence her peers to become politically engaged and now serves on the board as Secretary. She also interned at the Tennessee Democratic Party where she spent most of her weekends volunteering and learning about grassroots efforts to fight for progressive values in Tennessee.
Recently, Lindsey worked as a Field Organizer on the Karl Dean for Governor campaign for the 2018 midterm election. On the campaign, she recruited, trained, and organized interns and volunteers to advocate for healthcare, education, and economic prosperity to raise awareness about the problems Tennesseans face every day. Lindsey is continuing her career in politics and recently accepted a position as a Campaign Manager for the Bob Mendes Council-At-Large campaign for the 2019 cycle. Through her enthusiasm and energy, Lindsey is the blue wave that Tennessee needs.
