The Pearl River County Democrats will be at the Street Fair promoting our candidates in both the statewide races and the local races. Signs and campaign materials will be available. https://www.facebook.com/events/375377866362328/
Will be joined by Commissioner of Agriculture & Commerce nominee Rickey Cole and his family on Saturday after the forum in McNeill around 12 or 1.
On Sunday, Johnny Dupree, Democratic candidate for Secretary of State, will join us.
So come by our booth on Main Street across from P.J.’s Coffeehouse and visit with us. If you are not registered to vote or have been purged from the voting records, we will have registration forms available. We also have available the 22 crimes that prevent you from voting. If you have been told you cannot vote because of a conviction, please come by and speak to us. We will do all we can to get you back on the voters’ rolls.
This elections season is so very important. Our Legislature, led by the Republican Super-majority, has turned its backs on the average citizens of Mississippi. They have ignored the requests of our teachers, teacher aides and government employees who have not received a significant pay raise in years. The Super-Majority offered teachers and aides a paltry $500 a year, while voting their Elected Official friends a $10,000 per year increase. That increase means Supervisors now earn $55,000 for a part-time job with full benefits. Chancery & Circuit Clerks, with fees added, now earn in excess of $90,000. We must remember these antics in November.
The Democratic Primary will be Tuesday, August 5th. Educate yourself now. As always, our Democrats will provide rides to the polls on Election Day and will bring anyone wanting to vote absentee in person to the courthouse to do so.

See you at the Fair!
