Sources close to county commissioner Deidre Malone who was also a candidate in the democratic primary for county mayor state that Malone's career as a politician may not be over and that she is considering running for Shelby County Court Clerk in the next county election.
Malone if she runs would be facing current clerk Otis Jackson who also ran for the county mayor's position. The sources state that had Jackson stayed out of the race and tended to the office that he has not held for a full term her chances would have been better against Joe Ford.
The sources go on to state that Malone believes that political nerve wrecker and Jackson employee Del Gill convinced Jackson to run not really believing that the current clerk could win but to keep his name alive for a future run.
Should Malone decide to run against Jackson its a certainly that Jackson would lose and gill would return to the unemployment line.
