We stand behind Mayor Melton. We think he is doing a wonderful job in Jackson, cleaning it up from Drugs and violence. He might have gone about it the wrong way but his intentions were good for Jackson. We think this is all hog wash and we pray that Mayor Melton will stand fast and strong and let the winds blow. For a strong tree will sway with the winds and not fall, when its roots are embedded deep. We think OUR mayor has deep roots to keep him strong. We think he deserves to finish what he has started for Jackson.

The only roots SOON-TO -BE-EX-MAYOR MELTON has are the one's he planted in Texas, where e ran to after his indictment. If you are so cozy with his antics, pack up your family with your criminalistic views in tow, and ride your way to Texas with him. The man is a un-diagnoised mental patient,and people like him are gravitating to him like a bunch of deranged flies. Ihpoe you raise your kid's to be law abiding, it is obvious the both of you missed a class in moralse and common snese. Be gone!
