STAR HERALD – Alderman says he is Bennie Thompson’s campaign manager, his ward gets $250K

City of Kosciusko Ward 2 Alderman Henry Daniel submitted a list of possible streets to be paved with funds from the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act – A Legacy for Users at the Tuesday, March 3, meeting. The funds were awarded to the city by Congressman Bennie Thompson.

The $250,000 was first awarded to Ward 3 and later changed to Ward 2.

At an earlier board meeting, Daniel said the funds were designated to his ward because he serves as Thompson’s campaign manager.

A letter has been sent to Thompson regarding the confusion over the funds.
