Swain will be on to discuss her bid to become Nashville’s 9th Mayor, replacing Megan Barry, who resigned in disgrace after being discovered to have used taxpayers funds – as well as the resources of the Mayor’s Office – to carry on a years-long affair with the chief of her security detail.
The resignation triggered a special election, which the Metro Nashville election commission deemed to be August 2. However, that date is in dispute after another Mayoral candidate, Ludye Wallace, sued saying that a plain-reading of the law requires the date be May 1.
Eleven candidates have qualified to run for the open seat, including Barry’s former vice mayor, fellow progressive, and $9 billion mass transit boondoggle supporter, David Briley.
