Lowery says he ran best campaign he could

Mayor Pro Tem Myron Lowery is at his Whitehaven election headquarters, joined so far by a small group of family and supporters.

Lowery, 62, said he ran the best campaign that he could and that he demonstrated what type of changes he would bring to City Hall with the actions he took during his brief stint as interim mayor.

"I have run the mayor's office and the campaign the way I thought it should be done,' said Lowery, who was first elected to the City Council in 1991. "I gave the public a chance to see what I would do."

Lowery's bold moves, including firing City Atty. Elbert Jefferson in his first day on the job and immediately making City Hall more transparent and open, combined with several initiatives he championed as a councilman that came to fruition during his brief stint as interim mayor - red light cameras and a prescription drug discount card - were enough to propel him to second place behind front-runner Shelby County Mayor AC Wharton in the most recent poll.

Now, Lowery is waiting on the voters to tell him if he did enough to remain in the mayor's office.

"I've done the best I could under the circumstances," said Lowery. "I am extremely proud of what we have done."
