There are two more hats in the ring for the open District 1, Position 3 seat on the Shelby County Commission. They belong to Steve Basar, supply planning manager at Schering Plough, and Steve Ross, an audio-visual technician best known as the widely read blogger Vibinc.

Both Steves are imports from elsewhere — Basar from the Great Lakes area, Ross from Arkansas — and have been increasingly active in local political and civic affairs. Both also have attended classes at the University of Memphis.

The District 1, Position 3 seat was vacated recently by Mike Carpenter, who departed to become state director of StudentsFirst, an educational think tank in Nashville. The Commission will interview candidates on Wednesday during its committee sessions and will make an interim appointment on Monday, October 17.
