Luttrell Endorses Lenoir for County Mayor
By Bill Dries
Outgoing Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell has endorsed David Lenoir for mayor.
Lenoir, who is currently Trustee is running in the May 1 Republican primary for mayor in a field that includes County Commissioner Terry Roland and Juvenile Court Clerk Joy Touliatos.
“He understands that true leaders must be willing to roll up their sleeves to address the underlying causes of the challenges we face like blight, crime, economic growth and access to a solid education,” Luttrell said in a statement Thursday, Feb. 8.
The winner of the Republican primary will face the winner of the Democratic primary for mayor between state Senator Lee Harris and former County Commissioner Sidney Chism on the August county general election ballot.
