Hub City to try again to elect a mayor

HATTIESBURG — City of Hattiesburg residents head to the polls today for a rematch in the city’s mayoral race.

Democratic Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree recorded 37 more votes than his challenger, Independent Dave Ware, in a June 4 election.

The new election was called by Judge William Coleman after a mistrial was declared in a suit brought by Ware, challenging the outcome.

Polls will open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
