Tyrone Hendrix announces candidacy for city council seat

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

South Jackson native Tyrone Hendrix has formally announced his candidacy for the vacated Ward 6 City Council seat.

According to Hendrix's campaign, he has been dedicated to organizing around social and economic issues, and supporting candidates who are committed to improving the communities.

Hendrix's political involvement includes working with former candidate for Mayor of Jackson, Jonathan Lee; former gubernatorial candidate and Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree; and President Barack Obama.

We are told he was also state director for Organizing for America, the grassroots effort that grew out of the 2008 Obama campaign.

"I've known from a very young age that I wanted to feel like I was making a positive impact on society, and I found my calling as an organizer. My organizing career began working in low to moderate income communities, helping them to harness their collective power to affect change," said Hendrix.

Hendrix is managing partner of Hendrix & Dometz Organizational Solutions, LLC. He graduated from Forest Hill High School and earned his Bachelor's and Master's Degrees from Jackson State University.

Hendrix and his wife Ercilla Dometz-Hendrix have two children, Farah and Tyrone II.
