** Mobile users, click here if you cannot view the videos below.

JACKSON, Mississippi (WJTV) – WJTV 12 asked all eleven mayoral candidates on the ballot in the May 2nd primary what they would do about some of the most pressing issues in the city of Jackson.  Those questions are: “How do you plan to pay for needed improvements to infrastructure? How do you plan to reduce violent crime in the city?” and “Do you think the perception of the City of Jackson needs to change, and if so, how will you make the change?”

We met with all 11 candidates and conducted the interview at the location of their choice. The unedited responses to each question can be found on this page.  Along with the answers to our questions, you’ll find a link the most recent campaign finance report forms, where applicable, for each candidate and a link to the official website or social media page of each candidate.

The candidates for Tuesday’s primary are listed below in alphabetical order.
