Voters meet Ward 4 city council candidates

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Jackson voters got up close and personal with the Ward four city council candidates.

Residents gathered for a community forum at Greater Fairview Baptist Church Thursday evening.

Six of the seven candidates showed up to talk about why they would best represent ward four.

Audience members had the chance to each candidate a question.

Marshia Smith, who's lived in Jackson for 40 years, told us what issues she wants the next city council person to address.

"One thing really is the streets. Another thing is they stressed the point of helping seniors low income, there are some seniors out there that need help but not low income. How do we go about getting that done," asked Smith.

The Mississippi Link, The Jackson Advocate, and WRBJ hosted the event.
