The Vicksburg Post, 8/1/7

Education and improving county infrastructure and services marked much of the discourse at the second meet-and-greet session at Vicksburg Auditorium in as many weeks Tuesday.

Attended by about 100, the two-hour event was hosted by the Vicksburg Alumnae Chapter of the Delta Sigma Sorority, the Mississippi Chapter of Blacks In Government and the Vicksburg branch of the NAACP.

Specifics were largely avoided by the 29 county-level and legislative hopefuls who showed up. Among them were Democrats unopposed in Tuesday’s primaries, who have been running low-key campaigns.
