I want to congratulate Troy Kimble and Daryl Hollingsworth for being on the June 8, 2021 ballot as candidates for Mayor of Vicksburg. I continue to believe that I’ve created a pathway to the future for the success and prosperity of Vicksburg’s future. During my over 30 years in politics, I’ve never run against people; instead, I’ve run on what I’m able to do and what I have accomplished. I also believe that when my opponents speak, I should listen because they too can have ideas that can move our city forward.”Mayor George Flaggs, Jr., City of Vicksburg
