Megan Barry

In line with presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ assertion that solving society’s problems will require input from We The People, Nashville Mayor Megan Barry is asking for citizens to help improve Music City’s traffic nightmare.

Another long but non-lucrative week behind the Uber wheel.
