Art Allen is a Nashville native and longtime Bellevue resident with a history of service to the community, an understanding of issues surrounding Metro government, and a dedication to the future of Bellevue. Art is running to succeed Sheri Weiner and follow her model of pragmatic leadership and her focus on making Bellevue the best it can be.
Art graduated from Hillsboro High School and, after leaving the state to attend college, returned to Nashville to work as a case officer for the city’s trial courts for over a decade.
