As mayor, A C Wharton plays many roles. He’s a cheerleader, a negotiator, a storyteller, a strategist, a consensus builder, and a visionary. But most of all, he’s a fighter who’s constantly focused on the future and the key decisions that can move Memphis ahead. That’s why he is willing to make the tough, progressive decisions that secure the future this city wants and deserves. While others in politics choose to fight with personal attacks and define toughness by talking points, A C Wharton, Jr. continues to demonstrate a brand of leadership that fights for what is right and what is beneficial in the long run rather than what’s good for approval ratings right now. Visit this website often to learn more about Mayor Wharton’s priorities for Memphis and his achievements.



PRIORITIES: Fighting crime and blight, creating economic opportunity while reducing poverty and changing the culture of city government are top priorities for Mayor AC Wharton.

The safety of an American community is as fundamental to our system of government and way of life as are the articles of freedom that helped to shape our nation. “To ensure domestic tranquility” is not only the mission of our federal government and the armed forces that defend us from foreign enemies, but also an essential mandate for local government and peace officers who patrol our streets and protect us at home. View Mayor Wharton’s Crime Plan.

ACHIEVEMENTS: Mayor Wharton implemented new, aggressive programs that increased by more than 200 percent city spending with minority and women-owned businesses. Mayor Wharton has championed fiscal responsibility for the City of Memphis to end the City’s slow march toward insolvency.  It is in this context that his willingness to do what is right versus what is popular has possibly been most pronounced.
