Herman Morris' High Tech Press Event

Posted on Wed, Feb 28, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Earlier Wednesday local media were sent an email (the final one in a countdown series that began last week) titled "Bring Our City Back." The body of the email read: "Bring Our City Back ... with a return of integrity, dignity and ability. ... Don’t forget today’s important videocast announcement for the better future of Memphis — online today at 2pm. Visit to see the countdown to a new era. Pass this on to other concerned Memphians."

The email sent visitors to a countdown clock, which at 2 p.m. broadcast Herman Morris' announcment that he would be running for mayor.

The "Bring Back Our City" site now links to the campaign site of Morris, the currently beleaguered former MLGW head.

Interestingly, Morris is shown repeatedly turning over a sign with the letters "H" and "M," — or is it "H" and "W"? — which read one way is for Herman Morris, and read the other stands for Willie Herenton, the incumbent mayor and Morris' major opponent in the upcoming race.
