GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - This Tuesday, voters will go back to the polls to decide on a winner in several races that ended with a runoff. One of those races is for the Harrison County Board of Supervisors District Two seat. Both Ricky Dombrowski and Angel Middleton canvassed the Bayou View Area on Saturday, as they looked to gain a few more votes before Tuesday's runoff election.
Angel Middleton was in the lead by one percent at the close of the August 4th election, and she hopes to maintain that lead.
"Really it's door to door, door to door. I just feel like if I can meet someone face to face, I can get their votes," said Middleton.
Middleton is a registered nurse and business owner. Even though she doesn't have a background in politics like her opponent, she still feels like her work ethic and Christian values make her equipped for the job.
"I don't have an agenda. I'm not looking for a paycheck. I'm not looking for glory. I just want to do the will of the people,' said Middleton.
Ricky Dombrowski has served four terms as a Gulfport city councilman. Even though he was behind Middleton by one percent going into this runoff, he isn't nervous about the race.
"The biggest thing is going to get the turnout. We want to get the folks out that voted for me the last time, and if we can get them back out again then we should be successful," said Dombrowski.
Dombrowski calls himself a public servant, and says his knowledge of how things work in these types of offices makes him the man for the job.
"I have integrity. I have those things. I have the qualities of life. You know, I've been raised by a good Christian family, my mother and father, and those values are strong in me," said Dombrowksi.
Saturday August 22, was the last day to vote absentee. Voters will head back to the polls this Tuesday, the 25th to decide runoffs in 20 races.
