As the saying goes, one door closes and another one will open. As of December 31 I will be no longer be the Election Commissioner for Hinds County District 4. It has been an honor and privilege to serve the voters of Hinds County for 24 years. After much hard work by so many ffiends and supporters, we came up 112 votes short. I thank all of you who have supported my efforts for so many years. Pray for Hinds County elections in the future.
Kingfish note: The plan hatched by Derrick Johnson and Robert Graham back in 2010 is working perfectly. District 4 has four offices: Supervisor, Justice Court Judge, Constable, and Election Commissioner. Graham, Anderson, and Smith approved a secret plan to drop the percentage of white voters in District 4 to barely above 50% despite the fact that 30% of Hinds County voters are white. Constable Lewis went down last year while Mike Morgan and Jimmie Morton barely won their respective races for Supervisor and Justice Court Judge.
What is interesting is Ms. Cochran told this correspondent that our old friend Ike Brown was repeatedly calling the courthouse to find out the results of her particular race. Now why would he have such an interest?
