Over the past twenty years, Erika Sugarmon’s family, students, colleagues, and friends have been encouraging her to run for office because they know she will fight for the best interest of all Memphians. Sugarmon is not a career politician; however, she can no longer be a bystander and watch the increase and spread of poverty, crime, and bligt in her beloved city. Sugarmon is a principled person with strong convictions, she will get the job done! Sugarmon will do her due diligence researching the problems and/or issues, analyzing the impact, and vetting recommendations that are in the best interest of all Memphians. Sugarmon is the people's candidate and we are Moving Forward Together!
