Picayune Item: Supervisors Meet Congressional Candidate

Pearl River County’s Board of Supervisors received a visit from a candidate on the campaign trail during Wednesday’s meeting.

Mike Ezell was selected as the Republican candidate for the upcoming election that will decide who will be the next Fourth Congressional District Representative in the House of Representatives. Ezell beat incumbent Steven Palazzo in the primary.

He goes on to face Johnny L. DuPreee (D) and Alden Patrick Johnson (L) in the general election set for Nov. 8 of this year.

During Wednesday’s meeting he said he decided to run for Congress after he “felt like God called me to do something.”

He said that if elected, he will “be someone who shows up, stands up and takes responsibility.”
