When asked about Memphis, Alex says, I enjoy many things about Memphis, including the people, the city s growing diversity and the city's rich musical heritage. Of course, I can't leave out my passion for Memphis politics. No other place can compare to this town's politics. There's never a dull moment and that makes for great news.
