Does Ocean Springs really need the sportsplex?
They already have 2 large soccer fields, 2 tennis court areas, at least 4 baseball fields, I mean really? They really need that?
And 'the Public Safety Center?'
C'mon -- that's code for they want to set up an area in the East side of the city so they catch speeders and other 'traffic offenders.' It's another sham to get ticket revenue for the city. They have 3 fire stations and a police substation within one fire station now. They don't need a new cop station.
All that aside -- even if Connie does get elected, and given she's a Democrat, I doubt it, she's in WAY over her head. Jackson is not Ocean Springs.
She doesn't have allies to back her up and the board won't bend over backwards for her.
On top of that, the Democrats in Jackson are primarily black folks, and from the Delta and the northern part of the state.
They don't care about making the state pretty, all they care about it taking money from the coast and other richer parts of the state and redistributing that money to their cities and counties.
Connie might think she's qualified to run, but she's way in over head.
And as treasurer -- she thinks she's going to have it easy 'managing' money?
Sweetheart -- Jackson doesn't manage money, they chop it up and steal it and give it either to their connected good old boy networks, or to the people in their districts.
You go an hour north of the coast and you might as well live in Mexico. Other than Hattiesburg - there is nothing all the way to either Meridian or Jackson. And then from there, there's nothing all the way to Memphis....
She better sober up.
