This sums the whole Herenton situation up beautifully

Dwayne commented on the post below, and well, you just need to read this:

Henry Loeb was mayor when I was a teen, developing my political views. In addition to being a racist, Loeb was a narcissistic elitist who put his own ego above the welfare of the City. He made me gravitate towards the Democratic Party. His successor, Wyeth Chandler, was similar in philosophy to Loeb but more laid back. In fact, downtown and much of the rest of the City stagnated under his rein. Dick Hackett came after him. Hackett was a petty and immature micromanager who managed to let Holiday Inn and almost St. Jude go.

While Herenton did well for his first two terms, I believe his own personal character flaws have affected both his administration and the self image of many Memphians. He seems to adopted many of the same characteristics of his last three predecessors, especially Loeb, with similar polarizing effects. The white community is unified against him as was the black community against Loeb. Like Loeb, Herenton has lost many moderates of both races and relies on the race card for support. Like Chandler and Hackett, he has adopted a crony system versus reaching out to talented innovators in Memphis and beyond.

This administration is spent. The only question is when will he be gone - this July or later.

Willie Herenton as the black Henry Loeb - Damn.

Gentlemen, it sounds like he's just toying with all of you who dislike him. Its shameful that cities like Memphis,Detroit,Birmingham and Jackson end up with Mayors like that while places like Nashville,Charlotte and Atlanta progress with Mayors who care more about bettering their individual cities than they do the reflection in the mirror.

I absolutely detest the fact that in my adult life, I've never known memphis to have a mayor OTHER than willie. He was elected when I was a senior in high school. *SIGH.*
