    Just to clear things up, upper case “I” means Independent and lower case “i” means incumbent.

    Time for Commissioner Posey to go! He is no help to the people of rural central Mississippi. He won’t even return a phone call concerning broadband internet service for rural Copiah County. Our children need the internet to help with their homework too.

    Leonard Bentz is a good guy and he’s done a lot for South Mississippi while in office. Anybody who will fine a telemarketer $500,000 is all right with me.
