75. Citigroup Nominates New Independent Directors - Citigroup has nominated four new independent directors – including two former bank chief executives and two other financial experts – to stand for election at its annual meeting in April.

The announcement Monday comes as part of a continuing shuffling of the troubled bank’s board. Its shares climbed more than 30 percent.

Investors have long criticized Citigroup’s board for allowing the bank to make so many investments in the risky housing market – actions that have led to the bank reporting five straight quarterly losses.

Richard Parsons, who took over as chairman last month, has said he planned to look for people with proven business judgment and experience in the financial sector to replace retiring directors overseeing the company.

The board currently has 15 directors, three of whom previously announced they will not stand for re-election and two of whom will be of retirement age by the time of the shareholder meeting.

The candidates are Jerry A. Grundhofer, Michael E. O’Neill, Anthony M. Santomero and William S. Thompson Jr.

Grundhofer, 64, is chairman emeritus and former chairman and CEO of U.S. Bancorp; O’Neill, 62, is former chairman and CEO of Bank of Hawaii; Santomero, 62, most recently served as a senior adviser at McKinsey & Co. and is the former president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia; and Thompson, 63, is the former CEO of bond investment manager Pimco.

With the election of the four candidates, Citigroup would have 14 board members. The bank says the board also will consider future additions.

Parsons, the former head of Time Warner Inc., is one of the few Citigroup directors with experience in banking and leading a large company. Before joining Time Warner in 1995, Parsons served as chairman and CEO of Dime Bancorp Inc., one of the largest U.S. thrift institutions. Parsons also was an economic adviser on President Barack Obama’s transition team.

The three directors who have already announced they will depart from the board are Roberto Hernandez Ramirez, the chairman of Citi’s Mexican banking operations; Robert Rubin, a former U.S. Treasury secretary who was a longtime Citigroup board member; and Win Bischoff, most recently chairman at Citigroup. Ramirez said he will not stay on the board beyond his current term, while both Rubin and Bischoff have announced their retirement from the bank.

After suffering a loss of $8.29 billion in the fourth quarter, Citigroup announced it would reorganize into two units, Citicorp and Citi Holdings. The first will focus on traditional banking, while the second will hold the company’s riskier assets and tougher-to-manage ventures. In addition to receiving billions in government support, plus federal guarantees to cover losses on risky investments, the New York-based bank has agreed with the Treasury Department on a deal giving the government up to a 36 percent stake.

80. Cohen, Blackburn Lead Local Election Winners -

More than half and possibly as much as 75 percent of Shelby County’s nearly 626,000 voters are expected to turn out for the Nov. 4 election that will be highlighted by the John McCain-Barack Obama battle for the White House.

81. Cohen Crushes Tinker - Jackson Upsets Turner - Charter Changes Pass-Fail - 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
Democratic Primary
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
Republican Primary
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.

Trustee
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.

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.

U.S. Senate
Democratic Primary
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.
