Election Commission Holding Voter Registration Drives

The Delta Fair at Agricenter, Goat Days in Millington and the Southern Heritage Classic at the Mid-South Fairgrounds all have something in common in addition to taking place during this short work week.

Each will be the site of voter registration efforts by the Shelby County Election Commission.

The election commission is participating in National Voter Registration Month with a slate of events across the county. The events can be found at shelbyvote.com.

Voter registration drives in Shelby County are less of a priority for the various political campaigns than getting voters that are already registered to the polls.

The presidential general election ballot is the most popular election cycle in Shelby County by voter turnout. It is the only election cycle that consistently draws more than half of the county’s voters.

Election commission statistics show 558,832 registered voters in Shelby County. The U.S. Census population estimates for the county in July 2015 put the county’s overall population at 938,069, with 699,800 being 18 years or older.

The number of voters on the rolls in Shelby County is 79.8 percent of those old enough to vote by the 2015 U.S. Census population estimate.

The deadline to register to vote for the Nov. 8 ballot topped by the presidential general election is Oct. 11.

Enoble Headquarters Sells in Foreclosure

The four-story office building on Ridge Lake Boulevard that Enoble Business Capital spent $10 million to renovate has sold in foreclosure after its owner, Troika LLC, defaulted on a $9.8 million loan throughFirst Tennessee Bank.

The buyer, Merchants Capital Real Estate LLC, paid $9.6 million for the 55,676-square-foot Class B building, according to an Aug. 31 substitute trustee’s deed. Jay Campbell, J. Bennett Fox and Clarence A. Wilbon of Adams and Reese LLC served as substitute trustees on behalf of First Tennessee.

Troika had purchased the property from American Snuff at a 2013 auction for $776,160. It took out the $9.8 million loan through First Tennessee Bank in December 2014, with Enoble founding partnerDudley Boyd signing the loan documents as a member of Troika.

Following the $10 million renovation, Enoble moved its headquarters into the building, holding a splashy grand opening last November at which it touted amenities such as a company cafe with an executive chef and a fitness center for employees.

Enoble, which focuses on accounts receivable financing, also used the occasion to announce it was stepping up its funding efforts in the Memphis area, with a commitment to add $200 million in business funding to local companies over the next three years.

Company leaders said they considered the new headquarters an outgrowth of Enoble’s commitment to the Memphis market.

But in February, just three months after the grand opening, Enoble laid off about 15 of its roughly 75 employees. Company officials reportedly blamed the layoffs on market conditions, and said the staff cuts were needed to ensure the company’s continued financial health.

Then, in late July, most of Enoble’s assets were bought by another Memphis-based company. A statement on Enoble’s website reads: “As of July 29, 2016, Vero Business Capital has purchased the A/R factoring assets from Enoble Inc.”

Vero’s website lists 813 Ridge Lake as its business address.
