No Go for Strickland in Mayor's Race

Posted By on Fri, Jul 24, 2009 at 1:18 PM

29fb/1248468139-strickland.jpgJim Strickland, the Memphis lawyer who developed a head of steam last month with his budget-cutting proposals as a city councilman and became the subject of a draft movement to run for mayor, has decided against running, the Flyer has learned.

Strickland's decision was communicated to friends and supporters at roughly noon on Friday — the first formal notice appearing on the "Draft Jim Strickland" Facebook page of Tom Guleff. There was no immediate explanation as to why Strickland opted not to run, but it is known that a poll was conducted under his auspices last week.
