Is Kyle On the Outs?
Is Senator Jim Kyle (D-Memphis) about to ride (or be prodded off) into the political sunset
Of significant interest, however, to those who follow State politics is the fact that Tennessee Senate Minority Leader Jim Kyle (D-Memphis) was among those people who were being considered for appointments to the Shelby County School Board Monday, and Kyle was not chosen by the Shelby County Commission. The fact that Kyle was being considered for a seat on the newly-revamped Shelby County School Board might be seen to lend some credence to the rumor floating around in some circles that the long-time Senator may retire from the General Assembly at the end of his current term, perhaps because his seat is being redistricted as a result of reapportionment and he would find himself in a primary with another sitting Democratic State Senator.
