Jeff Good wins JJ poll.

The results are in for the first JJ poll conducted for the 2017 Jackson Mayor's race.  Restaurateur Jeff Good won the poll as he edged out Senator John Horhn. There is no doubt that some online ballot-stuffing takes place in these polls so look at who didn't get votes.  Very interesting.


Tony Yarber
  53 (4%)
 
Leroy Walker
  67 (5%)
 
Antar Lumumba
  113 (8%)
 
Melvin Priester, Jr.
  158 (12%)
 
Socrates Garrett
  33 (2%)
 
Jeff Good
  352 (27%)
 
Dekeither Stamps
  7 (0%)
Robert Graham
  39 (3%)
 
Harvey Johnson
  15 (1%)

It's time for a gay mayor

For Robert Graham's prospects - who is running on the theory that 35% of city has voted for him - this doesn't look good. JJ's readership probably knows Graham as good as most of these clowns (except Good, that doesn't count since he can't win a citywide election anyway). If there is anything to be gleaned from this poll, I'd say its bad news for Graham and Stamps. Nothing else of interest.

You didn't have Enoch Sanders as a choice..he would have won hands down

This election will go down just like all the others. North Jackson whites will get behind a candidate and he or she will get the highest percentage of votes out of a large field of candidates. Time for a runoff. Whites get all excited at the prospect of a white mayor. The second place finisher becomes the defacto "black" candidate. Runoff election day arrives, here come the church buses, black candidate wins with over 70% of the vote.

I would rather have Chockwe Lumbubmba's kid's dog's pile of dung than have to listen to Jeff Good run on at the mouth about anything.

Jeff would love to be mayor. That way he could get his face on TV and in the papers constantly.

Q: How do you get trampled in Jackson, Mississippi?
A: Stand between Jeff Good and a camera crew.

He truly does revel in his minor celebrity, doesn't he?

You obviously are a troll and not from Jackson because your hypothetical hasn't been a factor in the last 4 or 5 election cycles.

Jeff Good's role in city government should be that he can cater the inauguration reception of the next mayor.

What about city council? Is Margaret Barrett running? I think her health may be a roadblock in her getting reelected.

You split the colored vote - what did you expect?

Put some sugar in your britches and vote Jeffrey "Sugarbritches" Good for mayor.

Take a lesson from Bilbo said...

"I'll pave the streets of Jackson with month old biscotti!"

Jeff will lucky if he does not go broke keeping a business going in Jackson.

Why would Belhaven send Barrett-Simon back to the council? Exactly what has she accomplished? Does she even attend 50% of the meetings? Hell, she can't even get the street that the subdivision is named for paved.

Leave it to JJ commenters to hate success. Jeff Good sells plenty of cheese to go with that whine and makes hand over fist doing it.

Anonymous said...

Too bad he's white and doesn't have a chance. Moreover, I don't know why any qualified person in his/her right mind would want the job.

This Fondren resident says Jackson would be damn lucky to have Jeff as mayor. He knows how to run a business, work across racial lines and he truly cares about this forsaken town. Pretty good qualifications in my book. I think a platform pounding on streets and water might even get the attention of all the voters who drive cars with 22inch wheels! (Have you noticed how slowly they have to drive? That's good fodder for a funny ad.) If nothing else, it might make the other candidates discuss these basic issues in a detailed way about which streets should be repaired with the 1% funds.

Most people I talk to about the state of affairs in Jackson say that there has been no discernible progress in this city since Tony Yarber took office. But I am shocked to see that only 4% of the Northeast Jackson crowd voted for him in this informal poll.

An even bigger surprise is that Boy Wonder Priester did not poll better. He in the #1 or #2 position with 40 or more people I have talked with about the upcoming mayoral election.

Getting back to our current mayor, I have followed Tony's development since he was a school principal. I had such great hope for our city when I heard him make a passionate plea to the city council, challenging a proposed ordinance. I told my colleagues that this young man may become the mayor of our city someday, and I was excited about the possibilities for Jackson's future.

Fast-forward about six years later and Tony Yarber is elected mayor. He somehow became connected with Mitzi Bickers, and now the city is truly on its way to a hellish conclusion.

Mayor Yarber wasn't smart enough to surround himself with capable staff and administrators. He only wanted to give his friends and cronies the hook-up at the public's expense.

But the tragedy of all of this is that Tony Yarber was a good person before caving in to the world of power and money that Bickers placed before him. His unyielding efforts to reward/repay Bickers will lead to his unpleasant end--as it has for so many other good people who get turned on and turned out by a life of corruption.

Alas, who is next?

As we like to call it...Jokeson!
Reality is out there folks, maybe Jeff Good can get
one of the folks who runs his restaurants to run the city for him too.
Senator Horhn?!? Why would he leave all that fat lobbyists cash he receives as a senator, and is that what you even want?...
Wake Up!
Follow Melvin Priester, do your homework as a citizen, it's time for a change and not the guy with the biggest pile of B$ to sell you.
He cares and understands what Jackson needs, is the smartest guy in the bunch(Harvard Law anyone?) and light years more capable.

Jeff would be a great mayor. Unfortunately the brainless thugs that follow the likes of the Stokes of our city will stop that. Jackson will never improve when you have this mindless group just blaming the man for all their problems.

Anonymous said...

No argument here, I can certainly support Priester for Mayor of Jackson!

Anonymous said...

Is there any white people in senior executive positions in the Yarber administration?

Or - who is the highest ranking white person working for the City of Jackson?

Mayor Horhn wants JPD rides home from the local bar or tavern or Fondren friendly drinking establishment.

More disappointing to me than Yarber's failure as a mayor is his moral and ethical failures. And he professes to be a Minister of the Gospel, as does his partner in crime, Mitzi Bickers.

They will be allowed to mock God for only so long.

The only Jeff I want for mayor is Jeff Weill.

While Jeff good might make a great mayor, there will never be another white mayor of the city of Jackson. You hipsters can butch and moan all you want, but it is what it is. Then again, why do I care? I enjoy watching the City continue to fall. I was smart enough to get my family out, and have never looked back.

Anonymous said...

Kingfish, please run another poll for mayor of Joketown that only includes Yarber and City Council members, and make it a 3-day event.

I wonder how having Tyrone Hendrix affects the picture.

Please tell us something new or stop commenting. Us hipsters haven't been butching and moaning about that reality for nearly 20 years now.

Re: 7:26 a.m.: " I enjoy watching the City continue to fall." That is some cold shit, you smug bastard. If you pull your head out of your Madison/Rankin County Yazoo clay soil, you might start to understand that without a strong capitol city, all of you runaways will suffer too. You can run, but you can't hide.

Anonymous said...

10:15, sometimes a person watches things happen knowing exactly what the out come will be. After it happens so many times people just want the whole thing over with. We have had enough of the crime ridden cesspool. The quicker the city crumbles the faster we can rebuild it. The leadership in the last 20 years have all lined their pockets and the pockets of their friends and we can't see any of that changing in the future.

How does one suppose that Jeff Good might (1) be qualified to be mayor, or (2) might be a decent mayor? That he's a cheerleader for loft apartments, sidewalk eateries, low-wage pastry 'chefs' and jobs that do not ever require drug testing.....besides those things, what is there to support the notion that he can do ANYthing?

Do we really need a group of men (Good, Allen, Hal/Mal types) sitting around an oak barrel planning parades, pizza evening out, Fondren patio parties, A Walk To The Amtrak Station, Sunday Sidewalk, Art For The Elderly and Let's Paint The Parking Meters Pastel.....running the state's largest city that is already 3/4 of the way slid down the hill into the proverbial lost river?

The only white man qualified to run as mayor of Jackistan is dead. His name was Marlin Perkins.

Anonymous said...

These are really interesting comments, but can someone think of a person who would be a good mayor for Jackson--a person who is electable.

I live in Jackson, but I will move if a good person isn't elected in 2017.

Has Jackson progressed enough socially to elect a woman as Mayor?

Anonymous said...

2:25, you need to start packing, just a few months before you will be leaving Jackson.
Why would a good person want to be mayor of Jackson and is there a single person who would vote for a good person?

Anonymous said...

DonnerKay for Mayor. She can pave the streets with her rag and pay all city employees with Mange Bene and Cups gift cards. Winning!

Anonymous said...

How does electing a woman equal 'progressed enough socially'. I'm sure nobody gives a flappin' shit what the sex of the next mayor is. Seriously!

Anonymous said...

11:19, many people think the sex of the person is the only reason to vote for them and the most important reason. Usually they are right in the first reason and wrong in the last. Sex does not matter, qualifications is the thing most people forget and the most important thing. It has been a long time since qualifications have mattered.

This has nothing to do with mayor. Jeff Good was featured speaker at UMC White Coat Dinner for graduating doctors last Thursday. He was a very poor choice for at least two reasons:
1. A very large % of people in the room could not understand what he was saying.
2. These new doctors are entering a world where Obomacare has taken root. If Hilary is elected Obomacare will soon move to phase #2. That is where all insurance companies admit that Obomacare is rigged so that insurance companies cannot even break even, much less earn a profit. So then the government takes over for insurance companies. When the government can no longer blame insurance companies for high costs they will blame doctors and hospitals. In the world of socialized medicine, where the government decides how much doctors are paid, Jeff Good's marketing and community development message is totally irreverent.

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.
