Mayor candiates

Metro Nashville Mayoral candidates

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - News4 assembled 10 questions on key issues facing our city, and then asked all four candidates for Mayor to complete the Yes / No survey for us.

Early voting will begin July 12 and Nashville's mayoral election will take place Aug. 1, 2019.

The results will be revealed daily, Monday through Friday, through the next two weeks. 

We will add each candidate's Yes or No response as the day's question is revealed on-air.

Here is the list of questions we emailed to all four candidates, who completed and returned the surveys to us.

1) Should Nashville public parking be privatized?

2) Should the Director of Nashville Schools report directly to the Mayor?

3) Would you make cost-of-living raises a priority for city employees?

4) Do you feel panhandling should be against the law in Nashville?

5) Should electric scooters be banned from Nashville city streets?

6) Do you feel the Nashville sales tax should be raised?

7) Would you support a light rail public transit system?

Congested roads. Packed interstates. Former Mayor Megan Barry pushed light rail as one solution to Nashville’s traffic problems. So where do the 2019 mayoral candidates stand on light rail? News 4 polled four leading candidates for a yes or no answer: "Would you support a light rail public transit system?"

8) Should Nashville limit incentives to draw new businesses?

9) Do you support the community oversight board?

Controversial police shootings that were caught on camera rocked the community. Some in Nashville demanded a community oversight board. The police department opposed it. Voters approved it. We asked each of the four leading candidates for mayor: "Do you support the community oversight board?"

10) Should Nashville place more restrictions on short-term rental properties?
