Maclin Off to Fast Start in 2010 Clerk's Race

9e24/1243877167-king_cobra_and_corey_mackin_2j.jpgCorey Maclin, who has a background in the entertainment business, began seriously entertaining the idea of politics some time back. Maclin, who for the last several years has been Jerry the King Lawler’s partner in Memphis Wrestling, spent a fair amount of time wrestling with the notion of running for office, and now he’s doing so — as a Democratic candidate for Shelby County Clerk.

That’s the job which, in the last few months, has become a hot potato, with multiple indictments of office employees for a variety of improprieties and illegalities, including extortion. Incumbent Debbie Stamson, a Republican, has not been implicated but has served notice that she isn’t running for reelection.

Maclin expects company in the race, which will still be heating up a year from now, and he’ll likely get plenty of it, from both parties. In the meantime, he’s off to a head start with a series of public events, the most recent of which was a fish fry/fundraiser held in Frayser on Saturday.

Among the attendees were several current office-holders — including county Assessor Cheyenne Johnson, county Trustee Paul Mattila, both Democrats, and Sheriff Mark Luttrell.
