Tupelo, Miss. — Candidates for Northern District Public Service commissioner strike a stark contrast to each other, with the incumbent vowing to protect consumers and his challenger rallying for economic development.
In the final days leading up to the Nov. 8 general election, both want voters to know the difference.
“I think it’s our job to be 100 percent the guardian for consumers,” said incumbent Democrat Brandon Presley, who seeks a second term. “My record is unparalleled in the history of the Public Service Commission of voting against rate hikes. I’ve stood up to special interests more than anybody ever. That’s the truth.”
