Rep. Hank Zuber will not enter Ocean Springs mayoral race

OCEAN SPRINGS, Mississippi — Rep. Hank Zuber will not launch a bid to become Mayor of Ocean Springs, the state representative told The Mississippi Press Wednesday night.

“After serious consideration, prayerful deliberation, and follow-up with many friends, including past friends and supporters of the mayor, I will not be qualifying,” Zuber said in a statement to the newspaper. I could simply not get to the point where it was 100 percent in my heart.”
