On this edition of “Local 24 This Week”, State Representative Craig Fitzhugh sits down with host Brandon Artiles to lay out his potential plans to run for Tennessee governor in 2018. The democrat from Ripley also shares his thoughts on current Governor Haslam’s proposed 7 cent increase to the per gallon rate to the gas tax.

In the final segment, the publisher of the “Tri-State Defender,” Bernal Smith and Local 24’s Mike Matthews comb through the continued fallout of a security list at Memphis City Hall that now has the city fighting two lawsuits.
