Jackson Jambalaya: CL: Waller is In!!!

Retired MS Supreme Court Justice Bill Waller is running for governor. I don't know much about him, but have never heard anything negative, unlike the other two in the race.

The Conway Twitter/Tator Tot race was going to be a close one, but if Waller can beat Tater in the primary, I think he will have an easy victory.

Waller is retired and certainly doesn't need the job, I think he is doing it for the good of the state.

In my opinion, Tate, like Hillary Clinton, has a high unlikeability factor.

Do you know what his political views are. I think it would be great if he could beat Tate Reeves. If you have ever heard that man speak you will realize he's not that bright.

I live in Memphis now, so I won't be able to vote but I am glad to see that voters will have a choice. I would assume Reeves would still have the upperhand because he has raised so much money but at least there are options now. What are the actual positives of electing Tate Reeves?

This Tate dude looks like a cross between Bill Gates and Brett Kavanaugh. Kind of wild.

I understand this sentiment, but it seems that too often we are faced with a "lesser of evils" choice.

Tate Reeves notoriously single-handedly blocked Belhaven from having the opportunity to establish itself as a unique district that can tax itself for special projects to make living in the city continue to be viable (e.g. roads, security). For that, to me he can never be forgiven, as he intentionally sacrificed Belhaven (and Jackson by extension) for the right to brag about theoretically never having approved a tax increase, even though in this case Belhaven voters would still have to vote on such a tax themselves to gain approval. He would merely have been giving them the right to vote on their own community's welfare.

While he's enjoying his political games, people in Jackson are dying (12 homicides in about six weeks is likely the nation's highest murder rate, Per Capita, so far this year and more than double the rate of already horrific previous years)...not to mention deaths from accidents on nearly impassable city streets. The near-total non-action by both the governor and lieutenant governor to resolve the rolling disaster in the state's capital city is professional malpractice and immoral.
