Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber endorses Hillary Clinton: Clarion Ledger
Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton Monday, saying she will push for issues important to urban centers, including smaller cities like Jackson.
“Hillary Clinton knows how to make it happen,” Yarber said in a statement. “As President, she will give special and needed attention to cities, particularly minority-led cities, and the issues that plague us.’’
His endorsement follows Clinton’s recent comments expressing concern over high lead levels recently reported in Jackson’s water.
Yarber and some other black elected officials, mostly from the South, were on a conference call with Clinton earlier
