The city did have several city council races during the May 2 primary. Four of them were on republican ballots.

Jennifer Colmer won the republican council-at-large primary over Brenda Simkins. There is no challenger in the general election, so Colmer will take the seat.

Burton Burt Hill has two challengers. Forrest Fainn Ball, Jr. and

Matt Parker defeated Burton “Burt” Hill and Forrest Fainn Ball, Jr. to represent Pascagoula’s Ward 4. Parker has no opposition in June’s general election.

In Ward 5, incumbent Scott Tipton defeated M. Gentry Williams with 53 percent of the vote. Again, there’s no opposition in June, so Tipton will continue to serve as Ward 5 councilman.

Pascagoula’s only democratic primary was in Ward 1. Willie Jones defeated Willie Edward Sims in the primary. Jones faces independent Harold Payne on June 6.

The Pascagoula Ward 2 council race is June 6. Democrat Freddy Jackson campaigns against George Wolverton, Sr.
