Livable Memphis is hosting a Shelby County Mayoral Candidate forum next Tuesday at the Bioworks Auditorium. Like the District 10 candidates forum we held last week at our neighborhood meeting, this is a great chance to learn how the Shelby County Mayor could have a direct impact on the neighborhood in which you live.
More information is below.
How Can the Shelby County Mayor Help Our Neighborhoods?
Attend Our Candidate Forum to Find Out!
Please join Community Development Council and Livable Memphis for a candidate forum with the Democratic candidates for Shelby County Mayor on Tuesday, April 29 at 6 p.m., focused specifically on ways the county mayor and county government can improve the quality of life in neighborhoods. Traditionally we think of city government as the provider of services and the potential lever for neighborhood changes. But county government has a role to play too.
Democratic mayoral candidates Deidre Malone, Steve Mulroy, and Kenneth Whalum will attend and share their perspectives. Among the topics we plan to raise include:
-Ways the county deals with vacant buildings and vacant lots
- Issues related to county code enforcement
-The impact of school closings on neighborhoods
- Air and water quality, and related environmental justice issues
Do you have questions you’d like to ask about county government and neighborhoods? Please plan to attend and join the discussion. Bill Dries, reporter for the Memphis Daily News, will moderate.
When: Tuesday, April 29 6 p.m.
Where: Bioworks Auditorium, 20 Dudley St, Memphis, TN 38103 (Free parking in adjacent garage)
