So who's running for Memphis City Council?

Only four people have picked up petitions for this special election on November 4:

  • Brian Stephens, who made it to a runoff with Bill Boyd for the East Memphis-Cordova District 2 council seat before losing to Boyd in a runoff.
  • Kemp Conrad, who finished second in a hard-fought campaign for the Position 2 seat in the Super District claimed by Shea Flinn.
  • Lester Lit, who finished fourth in the Position 3 race in the Super District claimed by Reid Hedgepeth.
  • Regina Newman, an attorney who finished second in a nine-candidate field for General Sessions Judge Division 4 in 2006, also picked up a council petition.

The filing deadline is 12 Noon on Thurday, August 21.
