Meet Mayoral candidate Jeff Yarbro

by Rod Williams, June 30, 2023- The Tennessean is doing a feature article on each of the candidates for mayor, including a video of an interview with each. Above is the Tennessean interview with Jeff Yarbro. Thankfully, The Tennessean has made the videoed interview with the candidates sharable, so I am able to post it here. 

If one has a subscription to the Tennessean, you can read the article on Jeff Yarbro at this link. Most of what is in the article is also in the video. 

My main takeaways from the article and the video: Jeff Yarbro is well known to Nashvillians having served as the State Senator representing Nashville.  He lists his top priorities as education, public safety, and livability. He says he will be "focusing on response times for 911 calls, repairing potholes and broken streetlights, and doing whatever it takes to reduce pedestrian fatalities."  He advocates, "investing in the schools, parks, greenways, and sidewalks." He says his experience would make him the best qualified to heal the division between the State and the City.  I'm not sold.
