Jonathan Hall wins Nashville Metro Council District 1 special election runoff

Jonathan Hall
In case you missed it, Jonathan Hall wins Nashville Metro Council District 1 special election runoff. This election was little notices unless one lives in District 1. I have not met Hall or the person he defeated, Judy Cummings, but it looks like the better candidate won. Judy Cummings was a leader in the pro-transit group Moving Forward and an ally of former Mayor Megan Barry.

Hall is the son of late WSMV-TV popular weatherman Bill Hall. Hall cast himself as the anti-establishment candidate in the race. He opposed the recent transit tax referendum. He had the support of the former District 1 councilman Nick Leonardo. The vote was 1,067 votes to 774 votes in favor of  Hall.
