Attorney Vicki Slater calls for more women involvement in Mississippi politics

Vicki Slater talked women in Mississippi politics Monday and said she wants to fill a Mississippi ballot from top to bottom with women.

Slater, an attorney at law, discussed the history and future roles women have played in the state’s politics yesterday afternoon in Bernard Observatory.

In 2015, she ran for governor of Mississippi, a position a woman had not run for in more than three decades and those that did run were not successful.

Slater lost in the Democratic primaries to Robert Gray, but that didn’t stop her from encouraging other females to be the first.

Slater said she will run for office again in the future, but hasn’t decided what position yet.
