Wharton Outlines City's Future in Address
Memphis Mayor A.C. Wharton described his administration's new focus in four P-words: Potholes, Public Safety, Pensions and Poverty.
Also in his Wednesday speech (January 29, 2014), the Mayor indicated that some of his signature initiatives -- including what he calls "The Blueprint for Prosperity" to lower the cost of public transportation and utilities for poorer people -- will become more palpable once the City Council works out its impending budget issues.
In the above sound file, Bill Dries, senior reporter at the Memphis Daily News, offers more details on the Mayor's proposed initiatives.
