In case you missed it, an article in the Nashville Scene by Stephen Hale, says Bill Freeman tried to persuade Megan Barry and Charles Robert Bone to not run for mayor and he promised Megan Barry a position in his administration if she would not run. It is also revealed that Freeman has very deep pockets and can spend whatever amount he needs to spend on his campaign. Also, the article reveals that he has not, not been doing nothing. He has been quietly assembling a campaign team and lining up support and doing polling. Freeman says he will declare his candidacy by December 19th if he is going to run.
