James (Jimmy Benefield) is running. He will be the best man for the job.

I heard today that Jodie Steverson and James Nunnley are also running. Looks like we have got three good choices, all are good men and would do a good job.

According to mississippidemocrats.org there are two people running on the democratic ticket, Jody Steverson and Steve Fisher, and on MSGOP.org are listed two republicans, James Benefield and Alan Miller. It is my understanding that James Nunnally has also qualified on the democratic ticket but is not yet listed on the site, possibly due to slow updating. It seems we have some good choices for replacing Mr. Ward who has decided not to seek another term, but in my opinion there is only one clear choice. From my understanding, if Mr. Nunnally is elected his seniority will stand from his previous years. This means he can go in with the ability to attain a higher position right from the start. This is something we need to keep for Tippah County if we want to maintain a faster pace for progress. Tippah does not need to have to start from the ground floor and build back up, we need help now. I will be voting for Nunnally and for progress.

TommyClaire is correct in his analysis of "SENIORITY" and its value to constituents. The Mississippi House of Representatives is self governed by "House Rules" that include rules for "Seniority". The House has chosen to govern itself based on a "Seniority System" that basically entitles the most "Senior" members the most "Powerful and Influential Positions". Like it or not, the Mississippi House treats "freshmen" legislators much like high school "freshmen" are treated - generally overlooked and unappreciated. Representative Ward knows the value of "Seniority". In his own public statement he wrote that his "Seniority" of 2 terms (8)years had given him the opportunity to get the Hwy 15 project "back on track". I thank him for his service. I appreciate all the candidates who have placed their names in contention for this position. I appreciate their willingness to serve; however, being willing to serve is not a qualification, by any measure of the imagination. Wisdom comes with maturity and the business of the State should not be left to those whom have not been tried, tested and proven. James Nunnally meets every one of these qualifications. Given the current state of Legislative District 4, it is imperative that we send a person with the knowledge, position, and resources to do the job from day-one. Nunnally is the only qualified individual in the race that can do this for us. I trust the people of the 4th Legislative District will tally the positives in returning James Nunnally and his "Seniority", "Experience" and "Resources" and vote as I intend to - FOR JAMES D. NUNNALLY.

If new Representatives are treated like high school Freshmen, then we have sent the wrong person to Jackson. A new Representative with no "Seniority", can still have the ability to lead and should go there with his or her own abilities in mind and be ready to use them. Just because they have done it this way does not mean we have to keep doing it that way. Let's send some new people with new ideas. One of the reasons Mississippi is stagnant is we have too many that have been in power too long and no longer care about the people but are there for their own power and only pass the laws that will get them re-elected instead of what is good for Mississippi tax payers.

James Nunnally is my candidate! Those in Jackson that were in the house want him back because he was a driving force in legislative passage and will go back with seniority to start working for this district like Mr. Ward did!

Mr. Nunnally's senority will only follow him back into office if the Speaker of the House wants it to count. The last Speaker took Chairmanships and power from members of his own party because they did not support him in the last Speaker election. So his senority would be in question until after the Speakers election.

I'm for Nunnally. Seems like he did a good job in the past. Plus, he actually lives in Tippah county, 365 days a year.

New faces are "faceless" as "freshmen". No clout, no assignments, no influence by which to help our district. Representative Ward bragged about his SENIORITY of 3 terms begin the reason he was able to get the 4-laning of Hwy 15 back on track. Maybe he lied. Maybe SENIORITY isn't worth a crap these days. Mr. Nunnally IS the best man for the job. He has qualifications superior to any of the candidates - new faces and old. In reference to your remark about Mr. Nunnally not working in Tippah County; well, LOTS AND LOTS OF FOLKS NO LONGER WORK IN TIPPAH COUNTY SINCE JOBS HAVE BEEN SHIPPED OUT OF COUNTY, OUT OF STATE AND OUT OF THE COUNTRY. Check all the candidates out and if you judge each of them fairly, you'll apologize for your remarks and support James Nunnallly.

That's the very kind of thinking that has gotten us where we are now. We have a President who never did anything and had no knowledge of being a Senator much less a President. Look what that has led to. Seniority has everything to do with "These days" as much as "those days". Ward used 3 terms building up trust and it's gone, Bill Minor passed away and we lost his years of clout and now we have a chance to send a man to Jackson who has great knowledge of the state government and if we blow this it will be our lasr chance. Without senority you get nothing done for the people you represent. Nunnally did a fantastic job for 16 years, so for yourself, and your future, don't waste your vote

Amen, brother! Don't be tricked by some emotional desire to just start over again with all things new. That ain't going to happen. If we allow this opportunity of sending back to Jackson our only salvation (exerience and seniority) to slip away, Tippah County will dry up and wither away to nothing. There's no guarantee that, Nunnally, even with his experience and seniority can help turn this thing around. What is guaranteed is that that long dry spell is sure to come if we don't send seniority back to the capitol!

Please bear in mind that I have nothing against any of the candidates running for this office. It has got down to "Nothing personal, just business" Things are getting out of hand more and more each day and we need every shot we can get. One of these fine candidates can come along at a later time. The experience they will get from running for this office will be good. They need to watch and learn from a man who knows what he is doing and has performed in the past. Ward had 3 terms but he was very weak. Nunnally walks in the door knowing what to do and HOW to do it. Nunnally will step down one day and then there's your shot. Right now we need him.

That's another dumb quote. First problem with it is "it's and OLD saying". If I was repairing my lawnmower or my car I could see your point. This is not a lawnmower we are talking about, it is both of our futures. So, the legislature is broke and we need to send a new face down there to fix it? What would they do when they got there? What does this new person know that the wise and experienced doesn't know?

To refer to your stupid comment, how about this. Your car is broke so let's get someone who has never worked on a car before to fix it. Then again, we could get a person who knows what the problem is, knows where to get the parts, knows how to install them, and get it back to working. Can you understand it a little better now?

You had one part right..Wake up Mississippi and vote for Nunnally.
