Derrel Palmer finished third during the party primary on August 4 for District 2 Supervisor, with a respectable 26.3% of the vote. Yesterday, he endorsed Daniel Cross for supervisor.
I've intentionally stayed away from endorsing either candidate in the runoff for District 2 Supervisor, but I've decided it's time to go public with my support. While I will always believe the best qualified and hardest working candidate did not make the runoff, I still believe Rankin County needs change. In my opinion a vote for Brown is nothing more than keeping the same thing we've had, old time, good ole boy Rankin County politics. I reached out to ALL segments of our population, from the Tea Party to Eddie Dear's group All Citizens of Mississippi because I firmly believed everyone needs and deserves representation! But, I couldn't beat the "machine" that is Rankin County politics! Without big money and family name, the common person doesn't have a chance.
All that being said, I believe Daniel Cross will best serve the citizens of District 2 and I will support him and help him any way I can.
My Prayers go up for Rankin County and I look forward to whatever God has in store for me next!
A total of 5,640 cast their vote in the GOP primary on August 4 in District 2. Anyone care to guess the total votes tomorrow?
