NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Councilmember At‐Large Megan Barry, a candidate in the 2015 mayor’s race, today released a set of position briefs on four major issues that are likely to be front and center in the campaign for mayor next year. The documents address Nashville’s economic situation, public education, transit, and justice issues. The fourth – justice – covers public safety, affordable housing, homelessness, immigration, and diversity.
“In meeting with people all over the city, I am repeatedly asked what is your vision for Nashville now and in the future,” says Barry. “I’m releasing this initial set of policy briefs to share my thinking on a few of the major issues facing our city.“ She adds that further statements on additional issues will follow.
Each position brief appears in full as a web page under the “issues” menu heading at Barry’s campaign website, www.meganbarry.com. (Each brief can also be downloaded as a pdf file from its web page.)
