The next mayor of Biloxi?

Biloxi Mayor A.J. Holloway has three years left in his term, but already he’s hearing at least one prominent South Mississippi politician is gearing up to run for his job in 2017.

That man: Harrison County Supervisor Windfield “Windy” Swetman III.

Swetman isn’t tipping his hand about his long-term political intentions, but a big fundraiser he’s holding this week confirms he has a huge base of support from some of the Coast’s most prominent families.

Gov. Phil Bryant tops the guest list of doctors, lawyers, developers, builders, business owners, financiers, casinos and their general managers.
