YOUR TURN: Stop the spending

This week’s "Your Turn" segment goes to Theresa Harris. Harris is one of many people who wrote in to complain about Memphis Mayor Willie Herenton’s latest development plans for the city.

In her words:

"I think someone should put a leash on Mayor Herenton and enjoin him from spending any more money that the City does not have.  The school system had to lay off teachers and other school personnel and yet the Mayor has the audacity to say that he wants to build a new convention center and/or take over the Hickory Ridge Mall for a satellite office.  This City is in a financial crisis now due to the Mayor’s spending.  The Cook Convention Center has been remodeled and that building should be used or it will end up sitting empty just like the Pyramid and the Mid-South Coliseum, and continually costing the tax payers money."

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