Selma Mayoral Candidates Campaign for Last Minute Support
It's what could be considered one of the most hotly contested mayoral races in our area. Selma's current mayor and the former mayor ran against each other four years ago, and now they face off again.
Both have had their shot at city leadership in Selma, but former two-term mayor, James Perkins, Jr. is in the race to win back his old job. Elected as the city's first black mayor in 2000, he was defeated by current mayor, George Evans, in 2008.
Hoping to be elected to serve a second term, Mayor Evans says he has a plan for community growth.
Voters will head to the polls next Tuesday.
