Nashville Vice Mayor Appoints 7-Member Committee to Investigate Barry

Nashville Vice Mayor David Briley has named seven members of the Metro Council to a special committee to investigate the use of city money during Mayor Megan Barry’s affair with her former bodyguard, The Tennessean reports. At-large council members Erica Gilmore and Bob Mendes, as well as district council members Brenda Haywood, Burkley Allen, Mina Johnson, Russ Pulley and Robert Swope, will serve on the committee, which will begin meeting this Thursday. The body voted 30-7 last week to approve the council-led investigation, which will include subpoena power. “The most important objective of this committee should be that its conduct and deliberations be seen as fair and impartial," Briley wrote in a letter to council members.
