2. Bank of Bartlett Adds Staff Following Growth
- Saturday, November 15, 2014
Bank of Bartlett has seen a resurgence in loan demand over the last several months, something that’s prompted the Bartlett-based community bank to expand its headcount.

In the bank’s consumer business, more than 1,000 new loan accounts have been added over the same period – a “huge increase for us,” he said.

36. Maclin Announces For County Clerk
- Tuesday, April 07, 2009
Wrestling promoter and television personality Corey Maclin in the latest Democratic candidate to announce his intention for the 2010 county-wide elections.
Maclin told members of the local Democratic Executive Committee Monday that he will be a candidate in the 2010 Democratic primary for Shelby County Clerk.
Maclin, president and chief executive officer of Maclin & Associates Advertising and Promotions, told The Daily News he had considered running for the post held by Republican Debbie Stamson in 2006 but passed on the race. Stamson beat Democratic nominee Otis Jackson by 478 votes in the 2006 general election. Jackson ran in 2008 for General Sessions Court Clerk as the Democratic nominee and upset Republican incumbent Chris Turner.
Monday’s meeting was the first of the new executive committee since it was elected at a county convention earlier this month and elected attorney Van Turner Jr. as the new party chairman. They followed up by electing attorney Desi Franklin, who was instrumental in Turner’s victory over rival Jay Bailey, as first vice chair of the party. Cherry Davis, who had been first vice chair was elected second vice chair.
The only contested selection was for party secretary. Reginald Milton, another Turner ally, was the committee’s pick over Del Gill, a Bailey ally. Barbara Williams was reappointed party treasurer by Turner.

38. Cohen Crushes Tinker - Jackson Upsets Turner - Charter Changes Pass-Fail
- Friday, August 08, 2008
Democratic Congressman Steve Cohen was the big winner in Thursday’s primary elections. Cohen, with 80 percent of the vote, crushed challenger Nikki Tinker in the hard fought 9th District Democratic primary.
The upset of the evening was the general election contest for General Sessions Court Clerk where Democratic challenger Otis Jackson beat Republican incumbent Chris Turner.
And only one of two sets of Shelby County charter amendments on the ballot were approved by voters.
Voter turnout was just under 16 percent in Shelby County. Voter turnout was clearly driven by the 9th District Democratic primary. More people voted in that primary which covers most but not all of Shelby County than voted countywide in the state Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate. Turnout in the Democratic primaries was twice that of the Republican primaries in Shelby County.
All results are unofficial pending audit and certification by the Shelby County Election Commission and Tennessee election officials
9th Congressional District
Steve Cohen 50,284 79%
Nikki Tinker 11,814 19%
Joe Towns Jr. 914 1%
Not even close. Cohen won the primary for the open all Shelby County seat two years ago by 4,400 votes over Tinker and 13 other candidates. This time around he was the incumbent and Tinker’s challenge was more strident with a pair of controversial attack ads in the gap between the end of early voting and election day. Both were probably factors in the vote totals along with a smaller field of five candidates.
Cohen faces independent candidate Jake Ford in the Nov. 4 general election.
7th Congressional District
248 of 265 precincts reporting
Marsha Blackburn 29,158 65%
Tom Leatherwood 15,636 35%
These are the results district wide which includes not only the eastern part of Shelby County but a strip of Middle Tennessee up to the Kentucky state line. In Shelby County’s part of the 7th district, Leatherwood beat Blackburn with 62 percent of the vote. But it was 62 percent of just over 19,000 votes. Outside Shelby County it was always going to be difficult for Leatherwood.. The low voter turnout in Collierville and other eastern parts of the county made Leatherwood’s task impossible.
Blackburn faces Democrat Randy G. Morris on the Nov. 4 ballot.
Shelby County Charter Amendment #360
Yes 49,506 49.73%
No 50,043 50,27%
Closest contest of the night in Shelby County with a 537 vote margin and the highest turnout with 99,549 votes total.
This set of charter changes was to fix a legal problem noted in a recent Tennessee Supreme Court ruling. Another part of the package deal was increasing term limits for the county mayor and the county commission from two consecutive four year terms approved by voters in 1994 to three consecutive four year terms. The County Commission meets Monday to ponder whether it should offer another charter amendment on the Nov. 4 ballot that would fix the legal problem.
Shelby County Charter Amendment #361
Yes 65,548 68%
No 30,188 32%
This set of charter amendment includes provisions for recalling elected officials. It also establishes a new method for filling a vacancy in the office of County Mayor.
General Sessions Court Clerk
Otis Jackson 51,438 52%
Chris Turner 43,971 45%
The upset of the evening. Turner, the Republican nominee and the incumbent was seeking a fourth term. Jackson, the Democratic nominee, was making his fourth bid for county-wide office after coming close in a 2006 bid for County Clerk.
Paul Mattila 54,734 57%
Ray Butler 29,977 31%
Mattila beats Butler in a race featuring an energetic and misleading campaign by M. LaTroy Williams in which Williams billed himself as the “real Democrat.” He was, in fact, an independent candidate garnering 8 percent of the vote. Mattila fills the remaining two years left in the term of office of the late Bob Patterson, a Republican. Mattila, a Democrat, worked with Patterson. Butler, the Republican, was also a friend of Patterson’s and the race amounted to who would best continue to operate the office as Patterson did.
Criminal Court Judge Div. 6
John Fowlkes 44,581 52%
Latonya Burrow 21,874 26%
Michael G. Floyd 12,071 14%
Claiborne H. Ferguson 6,240 7%
Fowlkes serves out the remaining six years left of the eight year term of office of Fred Axley who resigned from the bench shortly after winning re-election in 2006. Burrow finished a close second to Axley two years ago and again ran an energetic campaign this time around. But Fowlkes status in the legal community and his appointment to the bench by Gov. Phil Bredesen proved to be the advantage.
Assessor of Property
Cheyenne Johnson 59,637 60%
Bill Giannini 39,057 40%
Johnson, the Democratic nominee, easily beat Giannini, who is also doubling as local GOP chairman. Local Democrats keep the county-wide position in their column as voters go for the candidate endorsed by outgoing Democratic incumbent Rita Clark.
2,192 of 2,290 precincts reporting
Bob Tuke 54,613 32%
Gary G. Davis 37,193 22%
Mike Padgett 32,190 19%
Mark Clayton 30,359 18%
Kenneth Eaton 13,718 8%
Leonard Ladner 4,431 3%
These are the statewide results. Tuke got 42 percent of the Shelby County vote with Clayton finishing second. Tuke, the former state Democratic Party chairman, faces Republican incumbent Lamar Alexander, one of the most successful politicians in the history of the state, in the Nov. 4 general election.
Judicial Retention Races
All seven state appellate court judges, including two Tennessee Supreme Court justices, won their yes/no contests on the ballot across the state. That includes Tennessee Criminal Appeals Court Judge Camille McMullen of Millington who was just appointed to the bench in June by Gov. Phil Bredesen.
The Associated Press contributed to this story....
