NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Attorney Charles Robert Bone announced Thursday he is running for mayor of Nashville in 2015.

The Nashville attorney and businessman announced his candidacy via email saying he plans to make a formal announcement and appoint a campaign treasurer in the coming weeks.

Bone, 40, told News 2 the next mayor must be bold in addressing the city's challenges.

"From growth, economic development and momentum, this city is without question headed in the right direction," said Bone. "At the same time, we've got a lot of issues like education, transportation, infrastructure, homelessness and poverty that have to be addressed if we are going to be the 'it' city and if we are going to be half as good as we think we are as a city."

Bone joins second-term Metro Councilwoman Megan Barry in the race to succeed Mayor Karl Dean.

The field of candidates will likely become more crowded leading up to the election next year.

"I think it will be a great race," Bone said.

He and his wife Sacha have four children ages four to 12.
