Democratic Ice Cream Social Meet & Greet Very Successful

To a room packed with Democrats enjoying all brands and types of ice cream, statewide candidates explained their vision for the offices they seek. Johnny DuPree, candidate for Secretary of State, spoke of voter turnout and the importance of this election to the future of Mississippi. Rickey Cole, candidate for Commissioner of Agriculture & Commerce, envisions a Mississippi where neighbor is allowed to sell what they produce locally creating thousands of new jobs. Both encourage all Democrats to help spread the Democratic message and get “folks” out to vote in the November General Election. Political material for all candidates was available. Candidates unable to attend are Attorney General Jim Hood, Governor; Rep. Jay Hughes, Lt. Governor; Jennifer Riley-Collins, Attorney General; Addie Green, Treasurer; Robert Amos, Commissioner of Insurance; Connie Moran, Public Service Commissioner; and John Stringer, Supervisor Dist. 2.
