Glencliff Neighborhood Association
(and former candidate for Metro Council)
former TN State Representative
I’ve known Ginny since she launched Radio Free Nashville, middle Tennessee’s first community radio station, 34 years ago. She’s helped link university students to community projects, been active at the Coleman Community Center, raised two wonderful children with her husband, Mike Muldoon, volunteered with many community organizations and been a general neighborhood helper.
Ginny is a “giver”. She’s served on the Boards of Directors of the Exchange Club Family Center, Community Shares, and the Tennessee Health Care Campaign and volunteered for Walk Bike Nashville, the Remote Area Medical Clinic, the Rape and Sexual Abuse Center, Hands On Nashville, the Red Cross, and St. Luke’s Community House. Ginny also served as a VISTA volunteer at Cohn Adult Learning Center.
Ginny is highly competent. Her on-air radio career began as morning co-host and news director at Lite-FM (FM-100 Radio Lightning) and at WZEZ, Mix 92.9 and Oldies 93.7 under the air name Katharine Dunn. She is co-founder and executive director of WRFN-LPFM Radio Free Nashville, and serves as Executive Assistant to the managing partner of Space Inch, a mobile game and app development company.
We are incredibly fortunate that once again, a true community leader has stepped up to the challenge of representing the 16th. Ginny loves our neighborhood and its people. Her roots are here, in our diverse, growing, and changing district. She will be on the job every day, alert to emerging changes so we can preserve and protect our strengths as we face the challenges of being the very best neighborhood in Nashville. She is the leader we need right now."
— Barbara Clinton, District 16 resident
The 16th District is the most diverse area in Nashville and we need a leader who will understand and embrace inclusivity for all of our neighbors. Ginny Welsch is the council member District 16 deserves, her experience and hard work can be seen in everything she does — that’s why she has my vote.”
— Ross Holmes, District 16 resident
I like to say Ginny is a bit of a bulldog—and I mean that in the best of ways. When she is tasked with doing something important, she sets her teeth into it. This was proved many years ago when she co-founded Radio Free Nashville against all odds. She stayed with it through red-tape, plenty of deadends and naysayers. (The station just celebrated its 14th anniversary on air.) This kind of tenacity is what the 16th District needs in a council person. She's high integrity, high energy, responsive and a good collaborator—the kind of person who can draw the city's attention to the needs of our district."
