Pamela "P." Moses Announces Candidacy For Mayor On Beale Street At W.C. Handy Park
April 18, 2019, 5:30 PM CST. On April 19, 2019, P. MOSES will formally kick off her campaign for the mayoral race. Moses, a community activist & musician, will use Beale Street to shed light on how underpaid the city's "heartbeats" - its performers and musicians are and how the city has neglected one of the safest integral parts of the city's tourist industry. "Memphis' musicians need to be supported like other occupations in the city," she believes.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - April 18, 2019 - PRLog -- Moses is the first black woman to initiate a political campaign on historic Beale Street where she will present her platform, hoping to be the first woman elected mayor of Memphis. She declares, "This is the year for radical change to move the city forward, to catch up to the rest of the nation & in some ways the world. This can best be done by electing some persons whose lives have been negatively impacted by our broken system. As a mother, musician, activist, and a warrior for social justice, I believe I can inspire and motivate the people to Rise Up for the chance to put the city's government back in the hands of the people."
She believes many of the citizens do not vote because they do not see and hear a viable option that will promote true change. Other candidates are out of touch with the issues that affect most of the city's population. Ms. Moses is also the founder of BLM Memphis who represented herself in litigation against former Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell and Terry Roland for slander & alleged pervasive corruption and racism in their actions. She persisted, and she prevailed. Moses believes the time has come to initiate changes in public policy. Her candidacy is a formal protest against the establishment's broken system. She and her team are committed to bringing about proactive change.
She intends to run a race for the good of all Memphians, but especially those who have been adversely affected by 'politics as usual' and the current administration's refusal to reach out to marginalized residents in the city government's process.
Moses declares, "I will continue to be a public servant who advocates for the voiceless and implement radical change by defunding the jail, investing in people rather than institutions that keep people oppressed and entrenched in poverty."
Her plea to all, especially mothers & musicians is to meet and greet her on Beale Street as she announces her candidacy and platform. Then show up, show out at the polls and vote for her on October 3, 2019. We request all media outlets to cover her announcement and press conference at 4:00 pm- 5:00 pm on Friday, April 19, 2019.
