MY TURN: An election warning

WMC-TV General Manager Lee Meredith WMC-TV General Manager Lee Meredith

The October 4th city election is important for the future of Memphis and for the region that surrounds the city. If you're not proud of the leaders we've had, then October 4th is date when you can make a difference.

Of course, I'm a civic minded person, so I urge all Memphis residents to vote in this important election. But there’s a caution here.  I'm really only urging you to vote if you take the time to learn about the candidates who are running and make thoughtful decisions about who should be elected.

The Action News 5 team and the Commercial Appeal have reported in recent days about candidates with personal issues that sound dramatically similar to some of the stuff we've had to endure here recently.

This is a great opportunity to help set the city of Memphis on a new course. Let’s not waste it. There are plenty of resources available for information on the candidates including our MidSouthVotes.com which you can find on our website, WMCTV.com.

That’s my turn. Now it’s your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
