Wilson qualifies for House race

Cory Wilson issued the following press release:

Wilson Qualifies for House District 73 in Madison County

Madison attorney Cory Wilson qualified this week to run for Madison County's new House seat, District 73. “As the 2015 Session opens, I am looking ahead to strengthen both Madison’s voice at the Capitol and the conservative House majority in the next legislature,” Wilson said. “I hope to apply my background in both the private sector and public service, and my conservative philosophy, to strengthen our economy, our schools, and Madison County's quality of life.”

Wilson completed his undergraduate studies in business and economics at Ole Miss and law school at Yale University. Wilson’s professional experience spans twenty years of private law practice and service in senior agency positions both in Washington and Mississippi. He also has served in leadership roles in a variety of civic and community organizations centered around the business community and economics education.

Wilson currently serves as Senior Advisor and Counsel to State Treasurer Lynn Fitch, and served from 2008-2011 as Chief of Staff for Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann. From 2005-2006, Wilson served as a White House Fellow in Washington, where he worked at the Pentagon for Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

“It is important to offer conservative ideas for moving Mississippi forward. Madison's new House seat provides an opportunity to build on the progress Republicans have made since taking the gavel four years ago,” Wilson added.

Cory and his wife Stephanie live in the Ashbrooke neighborhood and have one son who attends Madison public schools.

District 73 was shifted to Madison County during redistricting in 2012 to reflect Madison's population growth. The district runs from County Line Road in west Ridgeland to Highway 22 and includes neighborhoods like Dinsmor, Lake Lorman, Cypress Lake, Annandale, Ashbrooke, and Lake Caroline. District 73 also includes parts of Flora and the Deerfield area in Gluckstadt.

He is another nice guy who just cannot withstand the urge to have to shake hands and kiss babies.

He ran in Jackson and realized he is way to conservative to get elected there so he moved to his electorate, Madison.

Hope he wins...he's a good dude.

Couldn't beat Cecil Brown in 5 precincts that went deep for Haley Barbour and Thad Cochran. What does that tell you?

Great staffer. Not a candidate

12:33. Great staffer. Would be a great elected official. Might not be the best candidate, because he is too good a guy. But I would rather have a good legislator than a good candidate.

I too hope he wins.

Must not be a very deep Republican bench in Madison County if they need former election losers from Hinds County to carry their torch.

Only thing worse than a "Ole Miss Country Club Republican living off his ancestors' fortunes" is a "wannabe Ole Miss Country Club Republican living on his ancestors' fortunes"

Let me "rephrase my question so KF will post it"....

I heard that (you fill in the blank)_________ John Reeves was running as well. Any confirmation?

Cory would be great. Smart, driven, and sincere. I wish he were running for the district I'm in.

Anyone else find it interesting that the taxpayers of MS are paying him to campaign for office?

I know Cory a little bit. He's a very smart guy who desperately wants to be an important guy. Unfortunately, we don't tend to reward intelligence with political prominence much around here. Like a lot of smart, ambitious people in Mississippi, he probably would have been better served not coming back.

3:01.. Pompous DH.

Wilson and Bomgar will be a good pair for Madison County. I will be surprised if either faces serious opposition.

People bitch about unintelligent, dishonest people running for and holding office.

So an intelligent, honest guy runs. And what do we do? We criticize him.

Anonymous said...

I would vote for Cory, simply because he was smart enough to get away from Delbert.

10:38- have you not been reading this blog long? Everyone gets criticized for everything every time.

Apparently Joel was here at 10:20 last night trying to tie himself to the goodwill that folks (rightly) have for Cory.

Great comment, 8:01.

Cory and Joel are bright young men who want to serve. We need more in that category to step up. That said, as one who is trying to hold the center, I am not happy to see too much ideology, whether left or right, if that ideology requires resistance to compromise and common sense. Beware of the evils of puritanism.

Cory's not going to rock any boat. He will be as milk toast as a an elected official can be. He is not a puritan. He is a complete bureaucrat.

Well he would be better than the village idiot John Reeves.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
