Do you know your Democratic mayoral candidates? What do they have to say about Indianola? What do they have to offer our city? Indianola Main Street is sponsoring a Democratic Primary Mayoral Debate on Tuesday, October 20th at 5:30 pm at the Sunflower County Courthouse. Ross Reily, Managing Editor for the Mississippi Business Journal, will moderate.
The public is encouraged to attend. I know I will be there to lend an ear and my thoughts if called upon. Again, I am running as the lone Independent candidate on December 8th and was not invited to this party specific debate. I would hope a second debate will be scheduled pending the outcome of the Democratic primary results.
The Enterprise-Toscin, local Indianola newspaper, and other media organizations will also be in attendance. In this week’s paper, E-T Editor and Publisher, Wayne Parham, asks the community to share their questions for the candidates. If you would like to contribute, you can hand deliver your written thoughts or concerns to the E-T front counter at 114 Main Street in Indianola or fax it to 662-887-2999. Parham clearly states that he does not want to know who you are voting for or are against. He would like to know what the public feels are the main issues within this election and what specific questions you would ask the candidates.
Parham believes just as I do that anytime a resident has a question for any elected offical that they should feel free to call them and ask. Parham concludes in his editorial, “If they are elected to represent you, they should listen.”
My phone number is and will always be available to the public. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 662-298-4596.
