Vicksburg Mayor to switch party affiliation

Mayor George Flaggs

Vicksburg Mayor George Flaggs confirms to WJTV he plans to switch his party affiliation from Democrat to Independent in the coming weeks.

Flaggs says he plans to reregister with the Mississippi Secretary of State’s Office on March 20th at high noon.

Flaggs is known to work with both Democrats and Republicans. During an interview Flaggs said he feels he can better serve Vicksburg and Mississippi by being an Independent.

“I get along with both parties, so it would be better for me to be an independent, so I can do what I do much more effectively,” Flaggs said.

We asked Flaggs if he plans to run for a higher office to which he replied, “Well you know I’ve been doing some meditation about running for a higher office and if I make that decision it will be May 7th at 12 o’clock high noon.”
