Why I chose to run for mayor
I’ve been asked numerous times, why I am running for mayor in Jackson Mississippi. The simple answer is because Jackson, MS I feel your pain. In the streets of Jackson, MS I have felt the pain of dying young men, who had been shot, as I knelt beside them trying to stop the bleeding until paramedics arrived. I have experienced the pain of parents as I had to deliver the news to them that their loved one had been killed. I have felt the pain of trying to respond to a call in progress on our crumbling roads and get there in a timely manner. As a law enforcement officer, I felt the pain of being underpaid, under-appreciated, under-staffed, and overworked. I’ve felt the pain of the Jackson Fire Department, who worked hand in hand with us, face the same difficulties working tirelessly responding to call after call. I have seen firsthand the pain that is derived from corrupt administrations that drains us of our hope. As a citizen of Jackson, MS I have felt your pain of being without water for over a week!!! The short answer is because Jackson, MS I feel your pain and I am running for Mayor to help ease that pain and restore your hope!!!
