A strong Democratic voice for Middle Tennessee
Don’t let Republicans erase Nashville’s voice in Congress
Serving our community has been my life's work.
My roots are here. My wife and I raised our kids here. You can still find me out in the neighborhood, listening to Middle Tennesseans’ concerns and lending a hand — or a chainsaw — wherever I can. I am proud to be Nashville’s Congressman, and I am fighting every day for our community.
Help us build a better future for everyone.
Register to vote.

Tennessee Tribune: Rep. Cooper Leads TN Delegation to Rename Nashville Post Office for Late State Senator Harper
Rep. Jim Cooper introduced a bill to rename the United States Post Office located at 2245 Rosa L Parks Blvd. in Nashville to honor the late State Senator Thelma Harper.
The bill seeks to allow two government-operated dams, Old Hickory Dam and Cordell Hull Dam, located upstream of Nashville, to be used for flood risk management as a cost-effective solution to decrease future flooding. The dams were previously not allowed to be used for flood control, even in emergencies, unless authorized by Congress.
