Dr. Kenneth Whalum reacts to sales tax results

(WMC-TV) – One of the Most outspoken school board commissioners against the sales tax was Dr. Kenneth Whalum. And he was not shy about expressing his gratitude to voters.

"What it really does is show that the voters in Memphis are really not asleep and that you really can't pull the wool over their eyes on an issue and I'm just so excited and thankful to the voters," he said.

Whalum says his main opposition to the measure was because there was no guarantee where the money would go.
