The Cordova Leadership Council in affiliation with the Memphis Area Home Builders Association invites residents to The Future of Cordova Politics - City Candidates Forum to be held Thursday September 13, 2007, at the Memphis Home Builders Association offices at 776 North Germantown Parkway. The event will get underway at 6:00PM. People are encouraged to arrive early and participate in a candidate meet and greet prior to the beginning of the program. Sponsors for the night’s event are the Bartlett Area and Germantown Area Chambers of Commerce. These communities in Shelby County share significant boundaries with Cordova and the various Council Districts.

Activities include presentations by the mayoral candidates, a question and answer panel with candidates from Districts 1 and 2, and a meet and greet with candidates from Super District 9.

Early voting for the October 4th City wide elections begins September 14th. Cordova’s early voting site is the Bert Ferguson Community Center located at 8505 Trinity Road. This is a new early voting location and replaces the Agricenter on Walnut Grove Road. Other early voting locations can be found on the Shelby County Election Commission website.

Cordova residents like other citizens in Memphis will have six races in which to vote: City Mayor, their District race, three seats in Super District Nine and the City Court Clerk race. City Council District One encompasses nearly all areas north of Dexter Road, from Whitten Road to Berryhill Road and City Council District Two encompasses the remainder of the Cordova area within the City of Memphis.
