Jill Ford Running for Cory's House Seat

Jill Ford issued the following statement.


Today, Jill Ford announced her candidacy for the House of Representatives District 73 being vacated by Cory Wilson, citing her desire to keep up the fight for conservative reforms in the legislature. After narrowly losing to incumbent Supervisor District 3 of Madison County in 2015, Ford formed The Inherit Movement. This prayer movement was comprised of women of all ages, races and denominations who traveled together praying over all 82 counties in Mississippi. While traveling the State of Mississippi, she met and heard from hundreds of women across the state giving her a better understanding of the issues that are facing future generations. Ford is committed to serving her community and forming relationships with others to help move our state forward.

“As someone who lives, works and has raised a family in District 73 of Madison County for the past 32 years, I believe our community expects and deserves continued ethical leadership in the House” said Ford “ I will look out for, and always keep in mind, the citizens of our great county. I have always felt a sense of responsibility to give back to my community, and I can think of no better way than to take on a role of a public servant.”

Ford is uniquely positioned to serve Mississippi and fight for Mississippians. As owner and Broker of Ford & Company, LLC, and founder of Gatherings.design.com, she has developed and sustained companies from the ground up. She serves on the Board of Directors of Mississippi Blood Services in Jackson, Mississippi, and Partners in Christ in Madison, Mississippi. She is the proud wife to Mike Ford, mother of Patton and Crockett, and grandmother to Taft Ford with three other grandchildren that will be born in the next several months. She is a member and Life Group Leader at Broadmoor Baptist Church in Madison, Mississippi.

Huh. I figured she'd run against Gerald again and let Patton run for the legislature.

Oh no. Good luck Ridgeland and good luck Gluckstadt if she is elected. She is Queen Mary’s anointed one. Electing her would be the same as sending Mary Hawkins to the House. Horrible. Isn’t there somebody else who would actually represent people, not just serve at the Mayor’s pleasure?

If Jill is Mary's anointed one then everyone drive up to Madison and look around to see how clean that city is. I'm voting for the anointed one.

In a way, I hate to hear this. I had hoped she would run again against that scoundrel, Gerald Steen. He barely beat her last time and would not beat her again. I wish her the best in this pursuit but we badly need somebody to send Steen packing. He is as conflicted as possum chasing a bear in heat.

You dunces who claim people are puppets of the Madison mayor are full of it. For months you claimed Baxter and Jones, newly elected to the Madison County Board, were Hawkins puppets. That proved to be utter stupidity. Her only puppets, if she has any, are her immediate subordinates on the city payroll. Your idiotic remarks about this woman being Hawkins' puppet have no basis in fact. If you think they do, step up and prove it. Otherwise, you're nothing but farts in a whirlwind.

the poster @12:16 has to be Don Drane

I don't know Jill Ford, but I would vote for her over Gerald Steen because Steen is a con-artist. Since Ms. Ford has decided to run for the legislature, who will challenge Steen? On the Madison County Board of Supervisors we have Gerald Steen (savvy politician who is a scoundrel), Paul Griffin (looking out for his peoples), Sheila Jones (actually trying to do the right things for the right reasons), Trey Baxter (IQ of 50, worthless, and doesn't understand the job), David Bishop (tries to play both sides of the fence).

I'll vote for Jill Ford. She will actually do what she believes instead of wetting her finger and holding it in the air to discern the direction of the political winds.

The only downside of a Ford win is that she can't run against Gerald Steen next time.

Mayor Mary haters will hate.

Ford will play the political game to have a seat at the table. She won’t buck the Republican Establishment.

I will vote for Jill Ford. I don't know her, but read her Facebook posts and like what I see.

Hey 12:17, Just remember "what ya see ain't always what ya get".

I’ve known Jill for probably 20 years. Rest assured she can and will make the difficult decisions when she believes it’s the right thing to do for her district. Why do you think that all stops were pulled out against her when she ran for supervisor? Someone was afraid she was gonna turn their apple basket over. I still want the Republican Party to explain why they did not call her, as they promised, when they counted the absentee ballots. I’m not convince she actually lost to Steen in 2016.

Sure wish she would've beat Steen.
Bet someone will run against him and WIN!

Fear Not Friends! Steens has the support of the entire Ridgeland Board of Alderpersons (save one), so there's that. He be bringin' home the bacon (and the asphalt).

12:19 PM, the only balloon popping is yours. Billingsley doesn't live in the district.

What did he ever do to you? You dig at him every time you get a chance. If you're that obsessed you should at least know where he lives.

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.
