Weiner To Face Shulman In Vice Mayor Runoff

Sheri Weiner will face Jim Shulman in September in a runoff race to be vice mayor of Nashville.

Following Thursday's election, Weiner was in the lead with just under 46 percent of the vote, while Shulman came in at just under 42 percent.

The vote was too close, and no candidates received more than 50 percent of the vote, bringing about the need for a runoff race. The exact date for September's election has not been announced.

Their opponent on Thursday, Matthew Delrossi, made headlines during his campaign when he apologized for a social media post about Megan Barry's son who died of an overdose in 2017.

In March, Weiner was sworn in as acting vice mayor when David Briley took over as mayor upon Barry's resignation.

Barry resigned as mayor shortly after accepting a plea deal on theft charges that allegedly took place during her two-year affair with former Sergeant Rob Forrest.
