NASHVILLE, Tennessee: Yesterday, Nashville residents cast their votes regarding whether to recall Nashville Councilwoman Pam Murray. Recall efforts began after Murray and Councilwoman Karen Bennett disputed a proposed bill that would have led to permitting mobile vendors on Cleveland Street in which some called Murray "unresponsive."Residents became increasingly concerned after a NewsChannel 5 report in April 2009 that revealed that Murray works for a methadone clinic in Detroit, Michigan despite her legal residence being in Nashville.[1] According to Nashville law, elected officials must reside in the city or district they represent.

Murray was first elected to the District 5 council in 2003.

ApprovedaAccording to unofficial results and the Davidson County Election Commission, the recall effort was approved. The election commission plans to certify the results on Monday.[2]
