Mayoral race heats up with latest debate
The candidates running for Memphis mayor wanted to make a splash. In fact, the ones challenging incumbent mayor A C Wharton needed to make one. I believe councilmen Jim Strickland and Harold Collins did that. They took on Wharton's record while Mike Williams (a fourth participant in the debate) criticized both the mayor and councilmen. They talked about crime, city finances, and blight. Many observers still believe it is Wharton's race to lose.
