QUITMAN, MS – State Representative Greg Snowden has been endorsed for re-election by the three Clarke County mayors whose cities lie all or part within House District 83.  Enterprise Mayor Larry Murray, Stonewall Mayor Jackie McHenry, and Quitman Mayor Eddie Fulton are urging District 83 voters to keep Snowden on the job.

“Greg Snowden is a tremendous asset for the Town of Enterprise,” says Mayor Murray.  “Whenever Enterprise needs something at the Capitol, we call on Greg, and he is always ready and eager to help, whether it’s a grant application, a question about legislation, or some other issue.  We badly need to keep Greg Snowden in Jackson working for us.”

Mayor McHenry agrees.  “Greg is a longtime friend of the Town of Stonewall; in fact, he’s been our town attorney for over 15 years,” says McHenry.  “We rely on Greg’s expertise not only as our lawyer, but as our state representative.  He’s doing an exceptional job for Stonewall and for all of Clarke County, and we need to make sure we reelect Greg on November 8.”

“A legislative committee earlier this year tried to pass a bad redistricting plan which was very unfair for Quitman and all of Clarke County,” says Mayor Fulton.  “Even though the proposal would have helped Greg personally, he stood up for Clarke County and voted against the plan three separate times.  If Greg is reelected, we will have a chance for fair redistricting next year.  Greg Snowden stood up tall for Clarke County when it counted, and we need to stand up tall for him now.”

House District 83 encompasses a large portion of Lauderdale County as well as much of northern Clarke County, including Enterprise and parts of Stonewall and Quitman.  Snowden, a Republican incumbent with twelve years’ seniority, will face a Democratic challenger and an Independent challenger in the November 8 general election.
