Hinds County Supervisor Kenny Stokes says he's about 90% sure he will run for his old Ward 3 Jackson City Council seat. The seat was vacated by his wife, Larita Cooper Stokes, last week after she was elected a Hinds County Judge.
Stokes tells us he believes Ward 3 residents need him to fight for them for water bills and sewer and street problems they're facing.
Stokes gave up his seat in 2012, when he was elected Hinds County Supervisor for District 5. Larita Cooper Stokes won that seat in a special election.
If he wins, he has to leave the Hinds County Board of Supervisors. Peggy, Darrell, and Tony will appoint his replacement. The replacement will hold that seat until November. Hmm.... 4-1 majority. Run, Kenneth, run!!!
