The Davidson County Election Commission has certified the signatures required to force a recall election for District 5 Councilwoman Pam Murray.
A special election will be held Thursday, Nov. 12.
Murray has faced criticism claiming that she lives the majority of time in Detroit where she works for a methadone clinic. Murray denied that claim and said, while she does travel for work, she lives in East Nashville.
The filing deadline for prospective candidates is Oct. 1.
Attorney Jamie Hollin, who led the opposition group that collected signatures, has already announced he will run for the seat.
