Pro-Schools Progressive Announces Re-election Bid for House Seat

Aftyn Behn to seek full term in legislature in 2024 elections

A state representative who last year won a special election to fill a Nashville House seat has announced she plans to seek re-election this year.

Rep. Aftyn Behn of the 51st District representing a portion of Nashville will be on the ballot again in the 2024 cycle.

Since her election last year, Behn has proposed repealing the state’s grocery tax.

As an organizer on state policy issues, she has long been an advocate for public schools and has opposed using public money to fund private schools.

As Gov. Bill Lee has promised to move forward with a universal school voucher scheme, Behn will likely have an opportunity to vote to defend public schools in her first session as a lawmaker.
