Running for public office can be tough, with so many of your actions coming under public scrutiny. While there are plenty of good public servants in Mississippi, there is a need for others to step up and run for office; to debate, and to call into question the status quo.
Win or lose, contested elections are good. They bring to the forefront the issues of the people. Maybe you and someone you know should consider representing the issues of your community and becoming a public servant by running for elected office.
That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
