JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Hinds County Supervisor Robert Graham is throwing his hat in the ring to become the next mayor of Jackson.

The First District Supervisor says an official announcement will be coming soon.

Graham says he is "saddened and sickened" by what he sees happening in Jackson and that the city needs  "mature, adult leadership".

He goes on to say "in his estimation, everything is broken and needs to be fixed"

The municipal primary election is in May of 2017. Chokwe A. Lumumba, who ran unsuccessfully in a special election two years ago, has called a news conference for Thursday to announce his candidacy.
