Moss Point House candidates stump for votes

Posted: Updated:
MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) -

This is a big weekend for the five candidates vying for the Mississippi House of Representatives District 110 seat.  They have just three more days before voters in the Moss Point area must decide who should fill Billy Broomfield's seat in the state house.

The five candidates are:  Jeramey Anderson, Tyres Autrey, Mitch Ellerby, Aneice R. Liddell, and Anne' A. McMillion.

The Tuesday special election became necessary after voters chose Broomfield to run the city of Moss Point.  The winner will represent the Moss Point area in the state house until 2015.

The Jeramey Anderson website says he's running because "I believe in the value of life and will do everything in my power to foster a sustainable and thriving Mississippi."

When Tyres Autrey announced his candidacy, he told media members, "My interest in running is for the people.  I feel I can make a difference. People need a strong voice and I believe that I'm that strong voice.

Mitch Ellerby spent eight years in the state house.  And now, he wants to return to Jackson.  "I want to help improve our educational systems, support existing businesses and help bring new businesses, industries and jobs to our area," Ellerby said last month.

Former Moss Point Mayor Aneice Liddell said she entered the District 110 special election, "to serve the people, to be there for the people.  I'm running to continue to enhance the community that I live in."

Anne' McMillion believes Moss Point can market what it already boasts.  "I would like to see more industry and businesses settling here," she said. "I'd also like to see a higher rate of hospitality and tourism."

The District 110 special election is Tuesday, November 5.  The winning candidate must get at least 50% of the vote.  Otherwise, the top two finishers will compete in a November 26 runoff.
