The following release was sent out by the Ammons campaign:
"JACKSON, MS - On Tuesday, January 24, 2017, LaDarion Ammons qualified to run for Ward Seven City Council seat. Surrounded by his family, Ammons signed and submitted his official qualifying papers into the Jackson City Clerk’s office.
“I think Ward Seven has seen continuous growth and development, which is great. This is in spite of the actions within city hall,” said Ammons. “There are also parts of Ward Seven that are underdeveloped and forgotten by current representation, this is unacceptable. We need representation within city hall that can work for all of ward seven, leaving no area left behind.”
Ward seven has more than 15, 000 residents, encompassing Fondren, Belhaven, MidTown, and South Jackson.
“At the end of the day, I am just a guy from Jackson who loves this city and wants this city to be successful. I know that its success depends on Ward Seven being able to fully engage in the problems plaguing all of the city. I want to work for all of Ward Seven, and in turn all of Jackson.”
