Leadership Matters: The political landscape will be clear after the May 3rd democrat primary. I have been asked on many occasions if I had a preference of opponent. The answer has always been and continues to be, “it does not matter who the opponent is.” We will continue to be a results oriented campaign focused on the issues citizens have repeatedly said are most important to them. At the top of that list is CRIME… Remember, LEADERSHIP MATTERS.

Point Of Order: Hopefully you will be able to attend Rick’s press conference on Wednesday, May 4th, 2005, from 12:30 PM until 1:00 PM. at 612 North State Street, Suite A (The Ewing Building). We will officially kickoff our general election effort, talk about specific plans to address the crime situation in Jackson, and take questions about our platform. It will be a great way to spend part of your lunch hour! Bring a friend. We hope to see you Wednesday and certainly on the campaign trail leading up to June 7th .
