Often the ward one race for the Jackson City Council is lucky to field one or two good candidates. This year we have a bunch. The election is Tuesday, December 2.
I personally know four of the candidates: Ashby Foote, Dorsey Carson, Charles Barbour and Amile Wilson. I don’t recall having met Richard Sellars, but he seems like a viable, qualified candidate as well.
Foote is a well-known and well-liked investment adviser. Carson is a well-known and well-liked construction attorney. Barbour is a former Hinds County supervisor, so he is a proven vote getter.
