Hawkins-Butler Challenges Auditor to Debates

Madison, MS – Republican Auditor candidate Mayor Mary Hawkins-Butler today announced that she has challenged the incumbent Auditor to two debates.

The Hawkins-Butler campaign said a letter was sent via e-mail and U.S. Postal Service to the Auditor’s campaign requesting he participate in two debates. The Hawkins-Butler campaign proposed the debates take place in North and South Mississippi.

“It is important that the voters know my positions, experience and qualifications and most importantly that they can differentiate myself and Mr. Pickering as candidates prior to choosing who our nominee for State Auditor is.” Hawkins-Butler said.

Republican Mayor Mary Hawkins-Butler is currently serving her ninth term as Mayor of Madison and is a candidate for State Auditor in the August 4th Republican Primary election.
