NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Mayor David Briley was sworn into office on Friday as mayor of Nashville in a private ceremony following certification of the May 24 election results.

“As mayor, I am dedicated to an open and transparent government, to finding common ground and building trust,” Briley said in a news release. “I will build upon Nashville’s current unprecedented economic successes while improving opportunities for all Nashvillians. That includes more access to financial capital, a great education, good jobs, affordable housing and safe neighborhoods.”

Criminal Court Judge Angie Dalton presided over the swearing-in ceremony in the Mayor’s Office. Briley was joined by his family, friends and staff.

Briley also officially resigned his position as Vice Mayor. The election for Nashville’s next Vice Mayor, the leader of the Metro Council, will take place on Aug. 2 with a runoff election five weeks later, if necessary.
