STRICKLAND, MCCORMICK SCORE WITH STRAW-POLLERS

Posted By on Mon, Sep 29, 2003 at 4:00 AM

For what it's worth, the attendees at District Attorney General Bill Gibbons' annual fundraising fish fry, held at the Catholic Club on Saturday, have signaled their druthers in the forthcoming Memphis city election. A straw poll shows that if Gibbons' boosters -- a middle-of-the-road crowd with moderate Republican tendencies -- had their way, the mayoral victor would be incumbent Willie Herenton; the elected councilmen would include incumbents E.C. Jones (District 1) and Myron Lowery (Super-district 8, Position 3), Scott McCormick (Super-district 9, Position 1), and Jim Strickland (District 5); and incumbent City Court clerk Thomas Long would be re-elected. The totals: Mayor: Herenton - 80 (59%) Willingham - 55 (40%) Write-in for Wyeth Chandler - 1 (1%) City Council - District 1: Bates - 2 (2%) Bunker - 39 (33%) Jones - 76 (65%) City Council -District 5: Chumney - 37 (28%) Flinn - 33 (24%) Follis - 4 (3%) Strickland - 60 (45%) City Council - District 8, Position 3: Ford - 25 (23%) Lowery - 83 (77%) City Council - District 9, Position 1: Brown - 9 (7%) Lit - 14 (11%) McCormick - 61 (47%) Murphree - 1 (1%) Vanderschaaf - 32 (25%) Weiner - 12 (9%) City Court Clerk: Boyette - 40 (31%) Fullilove - 5 (4%) Long - 83 (65%)
