The Jackson Free Press is reporting that Leslie McLemore will not seek a third term on the City Council. Dr. McLemore has held the Ward Two seat since April 1999.
I have known Dr. McLemore since I moved to Jackson in 1982. He has a commanding intellect, a kind heart, a deep commitment to the City of Jackson, and the highest possible integrity. We don't often have persons of this caliber in municipal governments anywhere in the United States.
Congratulations to Dr. McLemore for a job well done!
