    In Memoriam 2017: Politics
    Vice mayor By Liz Garrigan With the passing of Jay West in March, Nashville lost a character who could well be considered the most humble and self-deprecating public servant in its history. West, who was 65, served 12 years as an at-large Metro Council member before becoming a one-term vice mayor, a relatively thankless role as cat herder and parliamentarian.
