District 5 voters hear from incumbent Daley
Incumbent District 5 supervisor McKinley Daley had the entire stage to himself at Monday night’s Meet & Greet Debate in Dundee.
Event organizer and moderator Rev. Roman Fullilove said he hand delivered invitations to participate to all candidates for supervisor from District 5. Fullilove told the audience of about 75 that one candidate, Craig Jones, had been disqualified by the local Democratic Executive Committee but would be allowed to participate, since an appeal is still pending. But Jones failed to appear. And Fullilove also announced that Independent candidate Billly Pegram had declined, saying Pegram told him that “voters already know what I stand for.”

State Auditor to county: ‘Reconsider’ withholding funds
Mississippi Auditor Stacey Pickering waded into the fray between Tunica County and the Town of Tunica/Tunica Schools in a March 30, 2015 letter to Board of Supervisors president James Dunn.
It has come to my attention through phone calls from the public that the Board of Supervisors has stopped making payments to the Town of Tunica after the Board filed a lawsuit alleging that the payments to Tunica are unconstitutional. I would urge you to reconsider this position. Although Miss. Code Ann. Section 19-13-31 allows a board of supervisors to reject claims found by the board to be illegal, the local and private law has not yet been declared unconstitutional and/or illegal and you have not yet received an injunction relieving you from the requirements of that law.
