Rooting for Mckay

Supervisor John McKay wants it to be more convenient to get a Driver's License in Jackson County.

During the board comments portion of the meeting, Supervisor John McKay said he wants to relocate the Driver's License Bureau from the Jackson County Fairground in Pascagoula to Miss. 57 in Gautier on nine acres across from Sunplex.

"It's a central, county location and we could also move the Justice Court," McKay said.

Brodnax argued that the county does not need a central location and the bureau needs to stay put.

"People in the west can go to D'Iberville, and people from George County can come to Pascagoula," Brodnax said.

Annual Freedom Fund Banquet 2011

Since Bo is running for District 4 Supervisor in Jackoson County Curly Clark invited us to attend the Moss Point Jackson County Branch NAACP Annual Freedom Fund Banquet 2011. I want to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Clark for his invitation and thank the NAACP for a lovely evening.

I had a chance to talk with Bill Luckett (Democrat) and his wife briefly, they were seated at the President's table so I was unable to talk with them after the banquet got started as well as Ron Williams (Republican) who was seated at my table. I was able to enjoy conversing with Ron Williams, his wife Towana and their son Jeffrey throughout the evening. Unfortunately I disagree with Mr. Williams on several important policy issues. Both men are running for Governor of Mississippi.

Both Melton Harris (Jackson County District 2 Supervisor) and Mike Mangum (Jackson County District 3 Supervisor) were at the banquet. Greta Hearndon who is running for Jackson County Tax Assessor and her husband were there, as well as many other candidates I didn't have a chance to speak with.

The guest speaker was Fred L. Banks, Jr a former Mississippi Supreme Court Justice
