Edmund Ford, Sr. told me that he would not seek the office of Mayor of Memphis but felt it was time for the next generation to take over. With that he stated he was considering running his son Councilman Edmund Ford, Jr. for mayor. I spoke with Councilman Ford, Jr. and he seemed surprised but felt that his recent appearance on a local talk radio show went well. He thought he had answered the questions and that the response from the listeners were positive so he was open to the idea.
Ford, Sr. said he would need to pray on if he would run his son or not.
