“My platform is S.O.S. – Save Our Schools. I believe that our children deserve to have their public education process fully funded, which is why I support MAEP and more. Mississippi should be hiring the best teachers to educate our children. To retain teachers, we must pay them a livable wage, which means I support giving teachers a pay raise.”
~ HESTER JACKSON McCRAY
