House District 51


Bill Beck

Family and Personal:
Rep. Beck is married with one child and is an attorney.

He is a member of the Nashville Bar Association, Kiwanis Club of Madison, Inglewood Homeowner’s Association, American Legion Post 82, Old Hickory Chamber of Commerce, Madison Chamber of Commerce, Discover Madison Inc, and HEMA-Historic East Nashville Merchants Association.

Councils and Boards:
He is on the Board of Directors for Allegro School of Music.



Rep. Bill Beck (D) serves as a Member, Criminal Justice Committee, Criminal Justice Subcommittee, Departments and Agencies Subcommittee, Select Ethics Committee, Select Ethics Subcommittee, and the State Government Committee.

Representative Beck was strong against child, sex, and human trafficking. He supported a government transparency bill and voted to prohibit the government from designating essential and non-essential businesses. Beyond those few issues, Representative Beck is a loyal Democrat, consistently voting with his party for bigger government and more social welfare programs, requiring more revenue, resulting in higher taxes. His 33% vote score puts him in the bottom 6% and indicates either a misunderstanding of, or a disdain for, the US and TN constitutions, as most of our bills were constitutional questions.
