I did in fact write a column on the Jackson mayoral primary last week. Unfortunately, my proofreader, JoAnn Ward, pointed out the column would run after the election. I had confused the general election date with the primary date. I do believe that’s the first time in 25 years I have made that particular mistake.
It’s just as well. Any subtle endorsement readers may have gleaned would have been used to peg my favorite as the “white northeast Jackson Republican” candidate. A sure-fire way to doom a Jackson mayoral candidate.
