Memphis City Court Clerk Drops Effort to Hire Daughter-in-Law

Memphis City Court Clerk Myron Lowery has abandoned plans to have his daughter-in-law, Chonisa Lowery, be considered by the Memphis City Council as deputy city clerk, the Commercial Appeal reports.

Chonisa Lowery is the wife of Shelby County Commissioner Mickell Lowery.
