Ahead of Tuesday's meeting of the Metro Council, Megan Barry held a press conference with a flock of current, former and future councilmembers, all of whom endorsed her.
More than 35 former, current, and future Council members have joined with Vice Mayor Diane Neighbors to endorse Megan Barry for mayor of Nashville.
"I want Nashville to continue moving forward and in order to do so, we must elect Megan Barry as our next mayor,” said Vice Mayor Diane Neighbors.
“I wouldn’t be standing here today unless I trusted that she had the best interest of all Nashvillians in mind,” said Councilmember At-Large Tim Garrett. “She will ensure that everyone has a voice in how we grow Nashville over the next four years. I’m proud to endorse Megan Barry for Mayor and I would ask that anyone who voted for me in the past consider her as their choice to lead Davidson County into the future.”
“Being the first member of the Metro Council to serve as Mayor, Megan will have a unique perspective, insight and experience that will allow her to begin working for Davidson County on day one,” said Councilmember At-large Ronnie Steine.
“Over the last eight years, Megan Barry and I have partnered together on important legislation that has helped improve the lives of working families and grow our economy,” said Councilmember At-large Jerry Maynard. “I know that as mayor, Megan Barry will have an administration that reflects the diversity of Nashville, ensuring that there is equal opportunity for all.”
