Bob may be on to something here...

Bob may be onto something here. He has been saying for some time that the Mayor of the city of Memphis is NOT going to seek re-election.

He notes that over the last year, he has given jobs in the administration to some of his strongest supporters, such as Janet Hooks, Sara Lewis, and now Tajuan Stout-Mitchell. In addition, his Special Assistant/chief spokesperson Gale Jones Carson is leaving to take a new position, director of Corporate Communications for MLGW.

Wait, you say, for Hooks, Lewis & Stout-Mitchell, how does that help them if they're only in office for a year or so? Well, it is my understanding that the city pension is based on your five highest-salaried years, as it is at many corporate entities. If their five highest years run 15, 30, 30, 30 and 80, that bumps the average up a bit, doesn't it?

As for Gale, she has spent her career in the communications field, and who needs help more than MLGW these days? The fact that she will continue to serve the city after WWH has retired is one positive that his administration can actually leave us.

If Bob is correct, and I am beginning to believe that he is, it changes the dynamic for the 2007 City elections quite a bit. With no Herenton, and no Rickey Peete in the Mayor's race, the field gets more wide open.

Now, it may well be that Polar Donkey is correct, and no white candidate has a prayer in hell of winning the City Mayor's race after the election of Steve Cohen to TN-09 congressional seat.

On the other hand.......

The questions then becomes who is the Herenton protege'? Got to keep those skeletons buried somehow.

I think I'm going to sit down with a slide rule and try to figure out how much all these damn pensions are going to cost the city.

An abacus as well.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I always thought Peete was the Herenton heir apparent. He was certainly Herenton's shadow at numerous public appearances. Of course, Peete's current problems throw a lot of that into chaos....

The Herenton "protege" is whoever boss Chism picks.
