NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Nashville voters will soon choose a new mayor.
Earlier this year, Mayor John Cooper announced he would not be seeking re-election, creating a wide-open field of candidates in the race to be the 10th mayor of Metro Nashville.
Tuesday night, News 2 takes a closer look at how candidates feel about crime, education, and more during Nashville Voices: The Mayoral Race.
The forum took place at Tennessee State University and was moderated by Bob Mueller.
Ten candidates participated in the forum: Natisha Brooks, Heidi Campbell, Jim Gingrich, Sharon Hurt, Stephanie Johnson, Freddie O’Connell, Alice Rolli, Vivian Wilhoite, Matt Wiltshire, and Jeff Yarbro.
WKRN will re-broadcast the forum on Saturday, May 13 at 12 p.m.
