Shelby County Criminal Court Clerk Heidi Kuhn has announced that she is seeking a second four-year term, the Daily Memphian reports. Kuhn hosted an opening fundraiser at Neil’s Music Room in East Memphis with a guest list that included Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland, former U.S. Rep. John Tanner and several Shelby County judges. During the event, Kuhn touted the several thousand criminal record expungements her office has processed and called for an “expungement court” that would take a “holistic approach” to the process that would help those eligible to also find and keep jobs.
