The City Council will appoint an interim replacement that will hold the seat until Memphians in Superdistrict 9 elect a new council member for Position 1 on November 4th. More on the story here and here.
Many of the following candidates who live in Superdistrict 9 and placed well in last year's council elections may decide to run for the open seat:
- Desi Franklin and Mary Wilder who placed second and third, respectively, to Reid Hedgpeth in Superdistrict 9, Pos. 3.
- Brian Stephens who placed a close second to Bill Boyd in District 2 (inside Superdistrict 9).
- Kemp Conrad and Joe Saino who placed second and third, respectively, in the Superdistrict 9, Pos. 2 race to Shea Flinn.
Carol Chumney who ran for City Mayor and formerly represented City Council District 5 and State House District 89 may also decide to run for re-election to the council.
