NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Both the United States and the whole world are reeling from the unprecedented dangers and challenges from the coronavirus. But Nashville faces even more difficulties after suffering a devastating tornado on March 3 that inflicted major damages on neighborhoods across the city and claimed two lives. Nashville also faces challenges with its city finances still fragile and critical decisions about to be made as Metro government faces perhaps its most difficult budget process ever. As a group, nobody is more plugged into our city than the 40 members of the Metro Council. Two of the county-wide elected members of that body join us this week on INSIDE POLITICS to discuss all these challenges. They are Bob Mendes and Steve Glover. We thank them for joining us and hope you will tune in for an insightful conversation.
