Tenn.’s largest city elects 1st white mayor in 24 years

The Commercial Appeal, Clay Bailey and Thomas Bailey Jr., 10/9/15 – Voters in this majority-black city elected their first white mayor in 24 years, rebuffing a three-term incumbent whose campaign sagged under rising crime, poverty and troubled finances, according to unofficial election returns.

Although a computer glitch caused a delay of several hours in tallying the vote, Mayor A C Wharton conceded to Councilman Jim Strickland shortly after 10 p.m. CT Thursday, saying he had no regrets about the race. Strickland declared victory a few minutes later.

Complete but unofficial returns showed Strickland took 42% of the vote to Wharton’s 22%. Harold Collins, also a councilman, captured 18% and Mike Williams, president of the Memphis Police Association, had 16%.

Six other candidates stood at less than 1% each. The city’s mayor’s race has no runoff.

Sutton Reid named Finalist for Best Radio Reed Award

Listen to our nominated spot “Obama” below.

MEMPHIS, TN, 1/17/2014 – Campaigns & Elections, the nation’s leading political campaigns journal, has selected Memphis advertising agency, Sutton Reid, as a finalist for the 2014 Reed Awards. For the second consecutive year, Campaigns & Elections has honored Sutton Reid for being among the nation’s best creative agencies in political advertising and public affairs.

“Obama,” a 60-second radio commercial created by Steven Reid of Sutton Reid Advertising, was selected as a finalist in the category of Best Radio Spots: Best Use of Voice Over Talent. The advertisement was created in 2013 for the citywide campaign to fund universal Pre-K classes in Memphis.

“Being selected by the Reed Awards is one of the most prestigious honors in political advertising,” said Steven Reid, president of Sutton Reid. “It’s an even greater honor to know that our small agency is recognized among some of our country’s largest and finest agencies, especially since Sutton Reid is one of a few finalists outside of our nation’s capital.”

The Reed Awards is named in honor of Stanley Foster Reed, founder of Campaigns & Elections. The Reed Awards recognize outstanding work in direct mail, online and print advertising, live and automated phones, radio, TV, political technology, and signage and collateral material.

Winners will be announced at the Sixth Annual Reed Awards to be held February 7, 2014, at the Washington Marriott in Washington, DC.
