With little more than a week to go before early voting and less than a month before the polls open for the August 5 general countywide election, the two contenders for the office of Shelby County Mayor — interim mayor Joe Ford, Democrat, and Sheriff Mark Luttrell, Republican — will take part in a televised debate Thursday night on WMC-TV, Action News 5, from 7 to 8 p.m.

The debate is being held under the auspices of WMC-TV in conjunction with the League of Women Voters and the Memphis Urban League Young Professionals. Panelists asking the candidates questions will be Jackson Baker, senior editor of the Memphis Flyer; Karanja Ajanaku, executive editor of the Tri-State Defender; and Jonathan Lindberg, publisher of the Main Street Journal.
