Jackson Mayor Harvey Johnson Jr. and city department leaders will answer questions from residents tonight at the Ward 3 community meeting.

Mississippi Sen. John Horhn, a recent candidate in the race for mayor of Jackson, will announce his endorsement of former Mayor Harvey Johnson this morning.

Horhn, who garnered 18 percent of the vote in last week's Democratic primary for the office, will make the announcement at 10:30 a.m. at Forrest Hill Park, located near the corner of McCluer and Henderson Roads in South Jackson.

This is GREAT! Will there be a live podcast from the JFP?? I guess we have really been spoiled by this paper and expect you guys to do everything, all the time with whatever it takes to make things happen. If not, thanks for the info.

I was a Horhn supporter and Johnson would've been my next choice if Horhn didn't make it, so I'll be happy in lending my support to Johnson. Johnson, with all his faults, was a really good mayor. He just didn't flash lights all over the place to make people realize that.

Justjess, we do spoil y'all! And it's our pleasure. I don't have anyone at the announcements, but will post an audio of both if someone sends me one. (One of our reporters may get to Johnson's; not sure, yet. Lots of news happening this a.m.)

Yesterday I picked up a couple of signs from Harvey's headquarters and recognized some former Horhn staffers.

Harvey Johnson was a better mayor than the citizens gave him credit for. He was doing more the city than we thought. The citizens of Jackson including myself were busy talking about what he wasn't doing. We failed to pay attention to what he was doing. I will be supporting Harvey Johnson for mayor of the City of Jackson. This time I will pay attention to what he is doing.

Robert Johnson got about 4 percent, or 1,380 votes NewJack. John Horhn got about 18 percent, or 5,922 votes.
