The Shelby County Schools board will no longer need a massive semi-circle with 23 seats at its next meeting in September.

9. Commission Considers Timetable for School Board Appointment -

Shelby County Commissioners meet in special session Wednesday, Aug. 14, to set the procedure for appointing a new member to the countywide school board.

And the process is much less complicated than it was before a ruling by Judge Samuel “Hardy” Mays of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee. That’s not to say it is without complexity.

10. Commission Calls Special Meeting on School Board Vacancy -

Shelby County Commission chairman Mike Ritz has called a special meeting of the body for Wednesday, Aug. 14, to set a timetable for filling a vacancy on the countywide school board.

The one item of business on the special meeting agenda, announced Friday, Aug. 9, is a resolution that sets a new timetable for filling the vacancy left in school board District 6 when Reginald Porter became chief of staff to interim schools superintendent Dorsey Hopson.

11. School Board Vacancy Collides With Redistricting -

Shelby County Commissioners have scrapped a plan to fill a vacancy on the countywide school board for now because it comes close to the Sept. 1 conversion of the 23-member school board to a smaller group.

12. Commission Scraps Process for Filling School Board Vacancy -

Attorneys for the Shelby County Commission are seeking a status conference with U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee Judge Samuel “Hardy” Mays on their plan to convert what is now a 23-member countywide school board to 13 members effective Sept. 1.

13. School Board Vacancy to be Filled in August -

Shelby County Commissioners plan to fill the vacancy on the countywide school board from the resignation of Reginald Porter at the Aug. 19 meeting.

14. Ritz: School Finances Remain Complex -

Shelby County Commission Chairman Mike Ritz said Tuesday, July 23, the commission is unlikely to increase funding to the countywide school system in the near future.

Ritz spoke at the Memphis Rotary Club the day after the commission approved a $4.38 county property tax rate that includes $20 million in new funding for the schools – the first increase in county funding to public education since 2005.

15. School Board Vacancy to Be Filled in August -

Shelby County Commissioners plan to fill the vacancy on the countywide school board from the resignation of Reginald Porter at the Aug. 19 meeting.

16. Commission Approves $4.38 Property Tax Rate -

Shelby County Commissioners approved a $4.38 county property tax rate Monday, July 22, ending a budget season that spilled into the first 22 days of the new fiscal year.

The key to the 7-5 vote on third and final reading of the ordinance was Commissioner Justin Ford changing his “no” vote earlier this month back to a “yes” vote and Commissioner Sidney Chism announcing he would no longer abstain from voting on the matter because of a day care center his family operates.

17. Board Continues Delay on Outsourcing Decision -

Not every member of the countywide school board who voted against outsourcing custodial services in February is still trying to stop the contract to carry that out.

But enough were at the Thursday, April 25, special meeting of the board that there was another delay in going through with one of the most critical decisions the 23-member body will make about the merger. And another four to six school board members were absent during the series of votes.

18. School Budget Debate Far From Over -

The countywide school board’s $145 million “ask” is on its way to the Shelby County Commission.

There was much debate among board members about the amount but general agreement that they need more details about what would be in even a preliminary budget.

19. Schools Merger Budget Sent Back -

The first and very preliminary draft of a budget for the first year of the consolidated public school system in Shelby County was probably dead on arrival this week.

Even before a public hearing Monday, Jan. 4, that drew several hundred people, countywide school board members spent most of the day reviewing the numbers with the transition steering committee – a group of top administrators from both school systems.

20. School Board Majority Backs Sales Tax Hike -

Twelve of the 23 countywide school board members have signed a letter urging voters to approve a half-cent countywide sales tax hike in the Nov. 6 elections.

The letter dated Thursday, Oct. 25, refers to using half of the estimated revenue from the extra half cent for an expansion of pre-kindergarten. But it mentions pre-k as one of several possible uses for the $30 million that would go to local education under state law.

21. Board Looks to ‘Inconvenient Circumstances’ -

As Bartlett aldermen approved additional legal expenses Tuesday, Sept. 11, in the Memphis federal court fight over municipal school districts, countywide school board members elected in the Aug. 2 elections and two new board members appointed Monday by the Shelby County Commission took their oaths of office.

22. School Board Questions Processes -

The process that countywide school board members are using to filter school merger recommendations from the transition planning commission looks a lot like the commission itself.

The group of senior administrators from both school systems even has a similar name – the transition steering committee. And like the transition planning commission, it will explore hiring consulting firms to advise it.

23. Muni Schools Questions Pass, Cohen Wins Big -

Voters in each of the six suburban towns and cities in Shelby County approved establishing municipal school districts in the unofficial results of the Thursday, Aug. 2, county general and state and federal primary elections.

24. Muni Schools, Cohen, Weirich, Johnson, Stanton, Kyle Take Early Vote -

Voters in each of the six suburban towns and cities in Shelby County were overwhelmingly approving the establishment of municipal school districts and a half cent sales tax hike to fund them in the first vote totals released Thursday, Aug. 2 by the Shelby County Election Commission.

25. School Board Looks for Consensus -

After effectively ruling out Kriner Cash last week as the leader of the consolidated Shelby County school system, school board members now turn to a decision about how to select that superintendent.

26. School Board Votes Not To Renew Cash's Contract -

The countywide school board voted Tuesday, June 19, not to renew the contract of Memphis City Schools superintendent Dr. Kriner Cash past August 2013 when it is scheduled to run out.

The 14-8 vote came during two back-to-back school board meetings covering five hours in which the board also agreed to talk more about a process for selecting the superintendent of the consolidated school system to come at a meeting next week.

27. Board Considers Future Leadership -

Countywide school board members will at least talk Monday, June 11, about the employment contract of Memphis City Schools superintendent Dr. Kriner Cash.

But how far the board gets beyond looking over the contract and making a decision about whether Cash stays through the August 2013 merger of Shelby County’s two public school systems was still an open question as the weekend began.

28. Civil Rights Icon Smith Donates Papers to Library -

Maxine Smith pointed out that the wheelchair she used to enter the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library was borrowed – and she also made a point of walking from the doorway of the Memphis and Shelby County Room at the library to her seat in the room.

29. School Board Races Set -

The chairman of the countywide school board, Billy Orgel, has effectively won election to his District 7 school board seat without opposition.

Five other incumbents appointed to the seven-district school board seats by the Shelby County Commission filed for re-election at the Thursday, April 5, filing deadline.

30. Cohen-Hart in Congressional Race at Filing Deadline -

The chairman of the countywide school board, Billy Orgel, was effectively elected to his District 7 school board seat without opposition at the Thursday, April 5, filing deadline for candidates on the Aug. 2 primary and general election ballot in Shelby County.

31. Deadline Looms for Complex Aug. Elections -

The August elections were already going to be more complex than usual. There are the changes from this year’s drawing of new district lines for the Tennessee Legislature and the U.S. House of Representatives.

32. Candidates Begin Pulling Petitions -

As early voting in advance of the March 6 primary Election Day begins Wednesday, Feb. 15, candidates are already considering races on the August ballot.

And at least one of the potential candidates just finished one political conquest.

33. New School Board Preps For ‘Gargantuan Task’ -

Martavius Jones didn’t stumble over his introduction at all Monday, Oct. 5, as seven new members of the new countywide school board took the oath of office.

“I used to be president of the Memphis City Schools board,” he said to a crowd of 400 that included officials of the two still separate school districts as well as family and friends of the new school board members. “This is a great day for all of Shelby County.”

34. Schools Get Fresh Start With New Board -

The separate Memphis City Schools and Shelby County Schools boards are no more when the end of September rolls over into October.

And the 23 members of the countywide Shelby County Schools board take the oath of office Monday, Oct. 3 at the MCS auditorium.

35. County Commission Completes New School Board -

Shelby County Commissioners made seven appointments Monday, Sept. 12, to the new countywide school board that takes office Oct. 1.

The appointment process completes a 23-member board that is to take office Oct. 1 with the seven appointees joining the nine current Memphis City Schools board members and the seven current Shelby County Schools board members.

36. Commission To Pick School Board Members -

Shelby County Commissioners take the final step Monday, Sept. 12, to the creation of a new countywide school board that will take office in three weeks.

The commission meets at 1:30 p.m. at the Vasco Smith County Administration Building, 160 N. Main St.

37. County Commission Interviews School Board Applicants -

It took Shelby County Commissioners nearly 10 hours Wednesday, Sept. 7, to interview nearly 100 contenders for seven appointments to the countywide school board that takes office Oct. 1.

The general government committee session with the applicants is a good indicator of what is likely to happen Monday when the full commission makes the appointments. The seven non-binding straw polls of the commission included selections by most of the 13-member body. But they selected either three or four finalists each which means there will probably a lot of shifts in votes Monday when commissioners are limited to one vote each.

38. Herenton's First Political Loss Likely His Last -

MEMPHIS (AP) – Willie W. Herenton, a charismatic, combative public figure who has towered over the Memphis political landscape since he became the city's first black elected mayor in 1991, is letting the curtain drop on his long career in public office.

39. Candidate Filing List -- The Final Version -

Shelby County Sheriff Mark Luttrell appeared on his way to the Republican nomination for Shelby County mayor at Thursday’s noon filing deadline for candidates on the May 4 primary ballot.

40. UPDATE: Mayor's Race Grows At Filing Deadline -

Shelby County Sheriff Mark Luttrell appeared on his way to the Republican nomination for Shelby County mayor at Thursday’s noon filing deadline for candidates on the May 4 primary ballot.

Luttrell faces only token opposition from perennial candidate Ernie Lunati.

Meanwhile, the Democratic primary for mayor grew to three contenders as General Sessions Court Clerk Otis Jackson filed his qualifying petition just before the deadline. He joins interim County Mayor Joe Ford and Shelby County Commissioner Deidre Malone.

Luttrell ruled out a bid for Shelby County mayor last year (2009). But when Harold Byrd decided not to run in the Democratic primary, some local GOP leaders asked Luttrell to reconsider.

The result touched off a scramble of candidates from both parties for the open sheriff’s office. But before the noon deadline, the initial field of over a dozen possible contenders was narrowed to ten – six Democrats and four Republicans.

The other surprise at the filing deadline was the return of attorney Walter Bailey to the District 2 Position 1 seat he gave up in the 2006 elections. Bailey sought re-election then to another term despite a two term limit on commissioners. Bailey lost to J.W. Gibson who decided not to seek re-election. He also lost a court fight to overturn the term limits.

Bailey was the only candidate who had filed for the seat at the Thursday deadline.

Only one incumbent county commissioner – Republican Mike Ritz -- was effectively re-elected at the deadline because he had no opposition.

All but one of the eleven contested County Commission races will be decided with the May 4 primaries. The only general election battle for the August ballot is the district 5 contest between GOP challenger Dr. Rolando Toyos and whoever wins the May Democratic primary between incumbent Steve Mulroy and Jennings Bernard.

Former County Commissioner John Willingham also returned to the ballot among a field of Republican contenders in the primary for Shelby County Trustee.

And former Criminal Court Clerk Minerva Johnican joined the Democratic primary field for her old job. Incumbent Republican Bill Key pulled petition to seek re-election but did not file at the deadline.

Here is the list of races and contenders from The Shelby County Election Commission. All candidate have until noon Feb. 25 to withdraw from the ballot if they wish.
