No Surprises in Nashville City Council Runoff Elections

Nashville voters on Thursday resoundingly rejected a former Metro councilwoman’s attempt to reclaim the seat they had recalled her from less than two years ago, electing her opponent by a large margin in a runoff vote, reports The Tennessean.
Scott Davis won the District 5 council seat over Pam Murray, who was recalled in 2009 amid complaints that she was unresponsive to her East Nashville constituents and often worked in Detroit. Davis received 805 votes compared with 328 for Murray.
…Davis is advertising director and part owner of Nashville Pride, an African-American newspaper. He was one of five council members elected in runoffs Thursday, joining the 35 who were voted in outright on Aug. 4.
