J.B. Loring (born January 31, 1930, Nashville; d. September 27, 2014, Nashville) was a member of the Metropolitan Council of Nashville and Davidson County, representing the 15th district. He is a retired director of the Nashville Electric Service, and he possesses both a Bachelor of Laws degree and a J.D.[1] He is currently campaigning for the position of Council Member-At-Large. He entered the September 11 run-off race as one of the top nine candidates out of a field of 26 on August 2.[2]

On August 28 at a forum for at-large city council candidates, at Benton Chapel on the campus of Vanderbilt University, J.B. Loring offered a plan for the former thermal transfer plant site. He suggested selling it to the highest bidder and building a multi-story parking garage with $2 parking.[3] He was a lead sponsor of a bill that would have bolstered federal immigration laws prohibiting the city from contracting with companies that employ illegal aliens.[4]

Loring died September 27, 2014 at the age of 84.
