Who isn’t running for mayor?

According to the Clarion Ledger article “18 running for Jackson [Mississippi] mayor“, “Incumbent Mayor Frank Melton is one of 18 candidates for the top spot, including the man he beat four years ago, the tax collector who threatened to auction his home and the former district attorney who tried to put him in jail.”

Wow, 18! All told, 60 candidates for city offices. Between the fear of being mugged by criminals and accosted by politicians, I’m reluctant to leave the house … oh, wait.

Not that I’m picking on Melton in particular, but his notoriety has probably led to the large pool of candidates.

I’m sure we’ll be learning way too much about the other candidates between now and the elections.
