Primary wins vault Joe Brown and Paul C. Boyd into head-to-head contest for General Sessions Court Clerk

In a race with 13 names on the ballot and several hundred votes cast for write-ins, former Memphis City Councilman Joe Brown emerged as the winner of the Democratic Party nomination for General Sessions Court Clerk.

Brown, who was term-limited and not eligible for reelection to the council, drew 20,602 votes, putting him 7,000-plus votes in front of his nearest competitor, Shelby County Board of Commissioners member Reginald Milton.

A North Memphis fixture, Brown now faces Republican Party nominee Paul C. Boyd, who easily outdistanced three other candidates, in the Aug. 6 County General Election. Boyd served eight years as Probate Court Clerk.
