Speculation and a schedule change
Magnolia Marketplace won’t be able to make this afternoon’s announcement at the state GOP headquarters about the party’s newest member. A schedule change will have us in North Jackson for something we’re working on for next week.
But we keep hearing the name Lynn Posey, who represents the Central District on the Public Service Commission. If that’s true, Northern District Commissioner Brandon Presley will be the lone Democrat on the PSC.
It will do nothing to change the voting dynamics of the PSC. Posey votes with Republican Leonard Bentz, who reps the Southern District, more times than not.
Either way, our colleague Amy McCullough will be there for the festivities, and she’ll have something on the MBJ website soon afterward. Stay tuned.
