1. October 21-27, 2016: This week in Memphis history
- Saturday, October 22, 2016
2010: On the front page of The Daily News, Memphis Mayor A C Wharton marks one year in office with the city filing more than 130 lawsuits in Shelby County Environmental Court against owners of blighted properties. “I’m a lawyer and I’ve gotten to the point where I’m just saying, ‘Hey, I gotta sue somebody,” he says. Wharton says he feels “right at home” in the mayor’s office. “You never see me arguing with council members,” he adds. “Wonder why that is?” The remark is the closest Wharton comes to comparing his governing style to former Mayor Willie Herenton, whose July 2009 resignation set the stage for the October 2009 special election that Wharton won while serving as Shelby County mayor. The contrast in governing styles is one factor in Wharton’s move to City Hall. But Wharton’s relationship with the council is already becoming more complex as he marks one year as mayor.
