I’m glad he won. His platform was incredibly progressive, and if just a few things he said he’s aiming to do actually happen, Memphis will cease to be such a crap city to live in.

Of course, there’s no way to know if he’s just full of shit. He could, in theory,  be planning on investing in land out in Arlington and Atoka for all we know. But I think that if he were some sort of huge con artist, he would have a few scandals under his belt by now.  And his record appears to be fairly pristine, as far as I know.

So, congratulations, Mayor Wharton.
