Ending months of speculation, charter school founder Jeremy Kane has officially thrown his hat in the ring to be Nashville’s next mayor.
The 35-year-old former CEO of LEAD charter schools made the announcement in a news release, with this video.
In April, former President Bill Clinton appeared in Nashville at Kane’s request. Clinton spoke to students from LEAD’s five charter schools and an invitation-only audience.
In May, Kane attended a panel with U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. Listen below to the answer Kane gave to WPLN’s Emily Siner at the event, when she asked him how a mayoral candidate who is pro-charter could reach out to those who resist charter schools.
