JACKSON — Democrat Brandon Presley says he’s seeking a third term on the Mississippi Public Service Commission.

The 37-year-old says people from across the political spectrum encouraged him to run for governor or other offices in 2015. But he says he wants to serve another four years as the northern district member of the utility regulation board.

Presley was elected to the three-person PSC in 2007 and 2011. He was mayor of Nettleton from 2001 to 2007.

Candidates’ qualifying deadline to run for state office in Mississippi is Feb. 27.

Voters in 2015 will choose eight statewide officials, including a governor. They will also choose northern, central and southern district members of the public service and transportation commissions. And they’ll fill all 174 legislative seats.
