PROPOSED CHARTER AMENDMENT #2
Section 15.03 of the Charter of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County shall be amended by deleting such section in its entirety and substituting in lieu thereof the following new Section 15.03:
“Section 15.03. Filling vacancies in the offices of mayor, vice mayor, district councilmember, and councilmember-at-large.
When a vacancy exists for the unexpired term in the office of mayor, vice mayor, district council members or in the office of councilmembers-at-large, said office shall be filled by election held by the metropolitan council. The person elected by the council to fill such vacancy shall remain in office for the duration of the council term.”
FOR THE BALLOT
Amendment No. _______
This amendment would require that vacancies for an unexpired term in the offices of mayor, vice mayor, district councilmember, and councilmember-at-large be filled by an election held by the Metropolitan Council, rather than by an election of the voters.
