Special election to fill Cooper-Young’s Tenn. House seat

There will be a special election Nov. 21, with a primary Oct. 8, to fill the Tennessee House District 91 seat formerly held by Rep. Lois DeBerry, who died in July at age 68. DeBerry, a Democrat, had held the seat since 1972, making her the longest-serving House member in Tennessee.

House District 91 takes in nearly all of Cooper-Young, between Barksdale and East Parkway. (The few blocks between Barksdale and McLean are in District 98, held by Rep. John DeBerry).
