NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Mayor John Cooper is my guest on INSIDE POLITICS this week. With everything going on, we are honored he can take time to join us. Mayor Cooper may have more issues on his plate than possibly any other mayor in the country. He faces nothing short of a triple whammy. Along with coronavirus pandemic, Nashville is still just beginning to recover from the deadly and destructive tornado that struck several neighborhoods across the city on March 3. And there are Metro’s still very serious budget issues which only got worse during the month of a March, being dealt direct blows by both the pandemic and Mother Nature, while the local economy tanked. The Mayor took on all three issues last Tuesday when he delivered his first State of Metro address. His speech was delivered under the most unusual circumstances.Join us for what I think will be a one of most important programs we have ever aired on INSIDE POLITICS.
