Mayoral candidate hosts cookout for residents

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Jackson mayoral candidates are using these last days before the election to drum up support.

Saturday afternoon friends of democratic candidate Robert Johnson hosted a cook out at Lake Hico Park. Hamburgers, hotdogs and popcorn were served to the small crowd. A DJ played tunes that had children dancing.

Johnson says these final events are important to reach out to voters who might be sitting on the fence.

"People know that i'm strong on crime and that i'm straight forward, no nonsense person that can get the job done and that's the message we have been relaying and will continue to relay right up until election day," Johnson said.

The democratic municipal primary election will be held Tuesday.
