Homer Burns, stalwart community organizer in the Reservoir area, provided his own endorsement in the District 2 Supervisor race this morning.
To the Voters of District 2, Rankin County:
The Supervisor is one of the most important elected officials in our county
because his decisions impact our daily lives. A supervisor oversees issues
concerning zoning and land usage, drainage, potholes, nuisance property, roads,
bridges, and infrastructure, garbage pickup, ambulance service, and mosquito
spraying, among others.
There are 410 supervisor districts statewide, and all districts have unique
needs. For example, 87% of neighboring District 5, Rankin County residents live
in two cities. A part-time supervisor, two mayors, and two sets of aldermen
effectively represent them.
In our District 2, 92% of our citizens live in non-incorporated Rankin
County. That 92% has no mayors, no aldermen, and only one supervisor. Our
supervisor is the one elected official whose sole job is to represent the
citizens of District 2, and our district requires a full-time Supervisor.
Kyle Brown's Advantage of Full Accessibility- 5 days a week, Monday-Friday:
• Will resign from his current job, if elected, and work for
us Monday-Friday, as opposed to the other candidate who will keep his current
full-time job and then work for us
• Will represent us alongside fellow county workers during a
regular M-F workweek, in contrast to the opponent who can only commit to
• Will answer his cell phone and respond to your emails to
help solve your concerns
• Will work with homeowner groups to help resolve issues that
impact property values and quality of life, i.e. metal storage buildings,
• Will work to keep us safe by supporting law enforcement,
fire departments, ambulance services, and our judicial system.
In closing, please join me in voting for a person who fully understands the
duties, time commitment, and responsibilities of Supervisor.
Vote Tuesday, August 25 for KYLE BROWN- Supervisor, District 2
