Equal Time

It seems Mr. Marcus Wallace, the owner of M.A.C. Construction took umbrage at a post Friday that pointed out his only contractor's license was for remodeling.   The question of M.A.C.'s qualifications came up last week as Mr. Wallace and Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba went toe to toe at the Jackson City Council meeting.  Well, JJ certainly wants to give equal time to Mr. Wallace and will take the liberty of posting his FB statement below, including a picture he posted of his certificates.




I'm here to only deal with FACTS.... it's was stated by the Mayor in a recorded video, on that so call internet blog and it's in the Clarion Ledger that I didnt have a certificate. The Mayor even stated that THEY did their research and called State Board of Contractors. Wonder who is THEY 🤔 Well, that's strange cause my wall is blessed with plenty certificates. Based on confirmation from my secretary, all my certificates are valid. So attorneys, correct me if I'm wrong but sounds like we gotta a little defamation going on here. First it was no minorities in the city had any capacity now its Mr. Wallace nor M.A.C. is certified. U don't purposely try to ruin an individual and a company who has been a blessing to a city. Never heard u had to be certified to do a pothole. Pave a street but not a pothole. Proceed.... Let's play ball

 Just want to keep you the people informed. Only interested in presenting the FACTS. It's very obvious now that none of this is really about city business nor politics but its very clear that it's about nothing but hate. I really appreciate this so call professional blog for continuing to do these blogs in support of the mayor's defamation of me and my company. If you go to this website and read this article it also shows you two things, some of the allstar cast behind the scenes advising the mayor on the info he really has no knowledge about and it also shows that months ago the mayor lied on public television that he reached out to minorities in the city but no one had the capacity to perform the water break projects that they gave out with no contracts. FACT! The blog list some of the minority contractors in this city with capacity and who have the resumes to back it up. Also, fact is that I am a CERTIFIED contractor regardless of what classification it is and I have a resume of projects that stretches over 23yrs, that's FACT! Don't get mad cause I've done well with my contractor's classification.It is also FACT that there is no certification for pothole maintenance. Asphalt paving but not pothole maintenance. Please continue with these articles cause you're doing exactly what I like to do and that's play ball so the people can really see what really going on. Proceed.... Let's play ball.
 However, Mr. Wallace made this statement as well: 

Lol, this blog site is hilarious!!! I posted this because several folks have inboxed me trying to respond to this blog but the author of the blog has to approve your comment. So basically that means they get all their slick jabs out and then ignore how the citizens really feel. I'm very confident in who I am so the jabs don't hurt but its obvious they hurt somebody Tuesday night. Ouch! That's what facts will do! If fighting and raising hell for the welfare and the safety of these children, the quality of life for the people in the inner city and the local business community makes me look like an ass, then I'm cool with that. Let's continue to play ball
Bullshit, Mr. Wallace.  Every comment was approved for Friday's post after you posted this statement.  Only two had been rejected but those were not too flattering to you but hey, you want them all approved so guess what? I approved them.  There is also one comment about the "Food Fight" post that I did not approve because it made some pretty derogatory references to JPS.  You are more than welcome to make any comment on this website or email statements and more legible pictures of your certificates to Kingfish1935@gmail.com

I can't tell what these framed things represent. I see something from 'Office Of The Governor', something that looks like a college certificate from Southern, something from the Congressional Record...None of those folks 'certify' contractors. Can't tell what else is on the wall - maybe something from the hardware store about being a good customer?

Hope he finds a really good 'defamation attorney'.

I hope he constructs better than he grammaticalateses.
Also, who calls himself a "blessing"? Shouldn't that be OTHER people stating what a "blessing" someone is?
This dude is a little too peppy,,,,makes one wonder???

And before he claims 'took umbrage' is a racist comment, it just means 'got his draws in a wad over' or 'got his feelings hurt'.

Lol, looks like Kingfish is living rent-free in Mr. Wallace's head. Keep exposing this lying, arrogant jackass!

Blessed Be My Wall, For It Shall Inherit My Certificates said...

Blessed? Inscrutably so!

Based on confirmation from my secretary, all my certificates are valid

Because his secretary is the ultimate arbitrationalist of certificatory validification!

attorneys, correct me if I'm wrong but sounds like we gotta a little defamation going on here

Yes, perfunctorial defamation of his reputabilitation!

Only interested in presenting the FACTS. It's very obvious now that none of this is really about city business nor politics but its very clear that it's about nothing but hate.

And his opinion that this is about hate is a FACT. It is incredibly factualescent.

Did you really write this Mr. Wallace? You are truly an embarrassment sir. Unfortunately you are too arrogant to realize how stupid and uneducated you sound.

Seems Mr. Wallace only cares about "inner city" children... not the white chdren of northeast Jackson that attend JA or prep. He's more concerned with racial politics than the area of town this lady was killed. He's slimy and I hope he's ridded of soon. Good on you kingfish.

Mr. Wallace, lets play ball. Email Kingfish a copy of your certificate of insurance and your certificates. There may not be a classification for pot hole repair but it falls under asphalt work. Prove everyone wrong and have you insurance agent list the class codes or description of operations on your GL and Workers comp(standard practice). I'd bet $100 it has nothing to do with street or municipal utilities work. Put up or shut up. You know how to contact this blog and you know you are reading this. Don't pull this whole defamation bullshit when you get called out. Prove everyone wrong and lets see what you got. You want to play ball, I just threw you a fastball down the center of the plate to prove yourself.

Well - trying to do an examination of those framed things on his wall, that his secretary has certified as being current, one appears to possibly be a license. Which is, as best I remember, what the Contractor's Board shows MAC to be licensed.

Hard to argue with him when he states that one doesn't have to be certified for pothole work - which is what he said last week at the Council meeting he was certified to do. Hell, if he's not careful, he might qualify himself to take Kennuf's seat on the Council with that kind of arguing ability.

Anonymous said...

His secretary says all of his certificates are valid. Yes, your certificate for "Remodeling", which is the only one you have, is valid. Problem is, Mr Wallace, you don't have the valid certificate needed to do road work. And as your are obviously unaware, pothole maintenance is in FACT considered road work, for which you are not certified. It is you who are lying and/or spinning the TRUTH, and you should stop before you make any even bigger idiot of yourself.

This is one of the most entertaining posts I've seen on here in a while, but in a frightening way. One would guess the upper center from Southern U in Baton Rouge is a diploma, but one can't even tell that for sure. And even if it is a diploma, what does that have to do with certification in any area of construction? Much less all the other unidentifiable framed items... commendations and/or recognitions of various types more than likely. Maybe a Jackson business license. What a sad and utter joke. Does he really believe any of this is proof of the certifications he lacks? Very sad.

I'm sure there's a Jackson Free Press "Best of Jackson" award up there. They give those out to everyone.

Best Pothole Filler - 2013

That should prove his qualifications.

Justice for Potholes said...

Mr. Wallace, you should be careful about wanting to “play ball” with the Kingfish. Unlike the career journalists at the local paper and tv news stations, he is actually good at this craft and will continue to expose and embarrass you with facts and research. You should back away and admit defeat, but judging by your public statements you are far too arrogant and foolish to stop.

Louis LeFleur said...

Still waiting for Mr. Wallace to provide his alternative facts. What a joke.

I have my Certificate of Responsibility (Major Classification: Building Construction) hanging on the wall in my home office. I can't use it or state that I am licensed since it has expired due to my retirement. I also have my Certificate of Graduation from Broadmoor Baptist Kindergarten (1959.) Since that one has no expiration date I declare I am still certified as a graduate of kindergarten.

Mr. Wallace needs to go to the MS Board of Contractors website (MSBOC.US) and read about Major Classification and Minor Classifications listed under each major. If his Certificate of Responsibility is only for the minor classification of "Remodeling" then he is not licensed to do road repair. He would have to either a major classification license of "Highway Street and Bridge Construction" which would cover all of the minor classes under that designation, or, the appropriate minor classification for pothole repair. I'm not sure which one would cover it. Possibly Asphalt Milling and Recycling or Asphalt Paving.

Forget these minority set-asides, the city of Jackson is a majority black. If you want minority set-aside then go to Clinton, Flowood, Madison, Pearl or Ridgeland. Quit bothering our young mayor who is trying his best to get off you mediocre so call minority contractors hustling the city of Jackson with substandard work. We've been in this black and white issues for almost thirty years now and nothing to show for but crime and decay and every business heading for a hundred feet or a mile out of the city limits. Because of people like you, we black folks are held back. Did it ever occur to you that we taxpayers want value for our dollars just like the surrounding municipalities, not enrich you.

A quick google search for images of a mississippi contractor's certificate shows that only one of those is such. That one must be for remodeling.

all this BS talk about 'defamation attorneys', 'defamation ', libel and slander. no-one had won and collected damages in a defamation suit since FDR was in the white house. give it a rest.

FACT - From the MS BOC. His license is for residential work and it appears to be for "remodeling". I don't know if Mr. Wallace has other qualifications and/or certificates. What I do know is that a "Remodeler" license doesn't qualify you for much and certainly not commercial work.

(b) “Residential builder” means any corporation, partnership or individual who constructs a building or structure
for sale for use by another as a residence or who, for a fixed price, commission, fee, wage or other compensation,
undertakes or offers to undertake the construction, or superintending of the construction, of any building or structure
which is not more than three (3) floors in height, to be used by another as a residence, when the total cost of the undertaking
exceeds Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000.00).

(c) “Remodeler” means any corporation, partnership or individual who, for a fixed price, commission, fee, wage
or other compensation, undertakes or offers to undertake the construction, or superintending of the construction, of
improvements to an existing residence when the total cost of the improvements exceeds Ten Thousand Dollars
($10,000.00).

Not true. There have been some won in the age of the internet.

One thing about defamation in Mississippi. It is my understanding that if a plaintiff loses a SLAPP suit, then the defendant gets treble or something like that. I'm sure readers will correct me.

Yeah jerky...go right ahead...what happens when someone gets hurt or worse in that pothole in front of your house that you fixed?

If you don't know about how good your liability coverage is...and what it covers and doesen't cover... then ask your insurance agent...you do have insurance...don't you?

Mr. Wallace,

Day 2. I know you have read my comment about sending the actual copies of your credentials and insurance class codes on a certificate to Kingfish yesterday. I thought you wanted to play ball. If someone throws strikes all day long and you don't swing, then you foul out. Prove us all wrong and you right. Do it today.

Thank you KF, as someone else posted, this is the most entertaining thread I have seen in a while. KF, keep up the good work.

@12:36

The major difference is Mr. Wallace (M.A.C.) wants to be paid for dumping a bag of asphalt patch from Lowe's in the pothole. I doubt you are requesting payment.

At this point anyone filling potholes would be a blessing.

How does one foul out without swinging?

This guys is nuts. It took all of two minutes for me to go to the website of the State Board of Contractors and determine his status:

http://www.msboc.us/Detail.cfm?ContractorID=14476&ContractorType=Commercial&varDataSource=BOC&Advanced=1

Is he really so dumb as to waste time with a photo of his wall when anyone with a computer can determine the truth in two minutes !! Amazing.

Wallace is either best woefully under educated and ignorant of the requirements of roadway contracting, and at worst he is a con artist who is used to getting his way with set-asides on many City projects thanks to the pro-DBE contracting policies and poor oversight of the last few administrations. I’ve found myself giving this mayor more credit lately than I ever expected, including in actually pushing back against unqualified minority contractors like Wallace continuing to feed at the City’s trough.

Anonymous said...

If you look at this link on the State Board of Contractors:

http://www.msboc.us/wp-content/forms/COMMERCIAL-APPLICATION-updated-11-2016.pdf

You have Major classifications which are Building Construction, Electrical, Highway Street and Bridge Construction, Heavy Construction, and Municipal and Public Works. There is no "remodeling" under any of these major classifications other than Building Construction.

Mr. Wallace, its getting late in the second inning. Full count. I'm the person who has been throwing some pitches. Why don't you swing at one since you want to play ball. I know you are reading this. If you have the classifications you say you do, why don't you post it. Post what class codes are on your insurance certificate. You know you have to send one to the MS State Board of Contractors to get your license. Certainly you can clear up all this "defamation going on here". "Lets continue to play ball". I'll post a little more later, but Mr. Wallace sure is being quiet here recently.

Amen, Brother! said...

In the reflection of one of the certificates is a plaque on the other wall that has a Christian cross on it. So I guess that one wasn't good enough to bless his certificate wall...

...but it means he's certified to fill the pothole in your soul.

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

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.
