The mayor presented an upbeat message. He said, "a year after facing one of Nashville's most challenging moments, Nashville is strong widely admired, resilient, and welcoming." He touted the economic growth of the city but said we must work to create "equitable prosperity."

He said the city is in fine shape and much improved from a year ago. "When I spoke to you here a year ago, we were in a much different position," he said. "I said from this very spot that sacrifice leads to success. We had to get Metro’s budget under control by living within our means, and departments throughout Metro stepped up and did just that. Our plan worked."

He announced he will submit to the Metro Council this week a no-tax increase $2.33 billion budget for the upcoming fiscal year.
