Candidates for Metro Council District 5

As of May 27, the candidates to succeed Jamie Hollin in representing Metro Nashville District 5 include:

Scott Davis
Priscilla Eaton
Pam Murray

Tennessean reporter Michael Cass blogs that Amy Bryson had filed to run in the election, but now plans to move to Blacksburg, Va., later this summer. She did not withdrawal from the election by the deadline and so her name will still appear on the August 4 ballot.

Councilman Jamie Hollin, who beat Murray after defeating her in the 2009 recall election, isn’t seeking re-election.

Greenwood Neighbors sits near the southeast corner of District 5 (PDF map), which runs roughly from the Cumberland River to I-24, along I-65 to just north of Trinity Lane, to Gallatin Avenue and along Main Street back to the river.
