Mayoral candidate Megan Barry earned her place in Nashville’s history tonight as the first female mayor of the city. With 55% of the vote, Barry beat out opponent David Fox for the coveted position.

Barry’s campaign addressed issues important to all of Nashville’s citizens and Barry spoke favorably of the Nashville music industry when she addressed her supporters tonight at the Nashville Farmers’ Market. She said, “This story is going to be written by the artists, the musicians, the entertainers who inspire all of us. These creatives need a mayor who is going to support the artistic community and make sure that Nashville stays affordable.” She added, “This is really a story about our working families. And, those families who are the backbone of our economy who need access to transportation, excellent public education, and affordable places to live.”

The inauguration is set for September 25.
