Jackson Mayoral Democratic Runoff Debate is tonight

Tonight at 7:00 p.m., Harvey Johnson and Marshand Crisler will take the stage at JSU's Rose McCoy Auditorium for a one-hour debate. Admission is free and on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the organizers of the debate ask that you be seated by 6:40 p.m., as the debate will be televised live starting promptly at 7:00 p.m.

The debate will be broadcast on TV on JSU's TV23 (Comcast channel 14), and WAPT’s digital channel 16-2 (208 on Comcast). You can also listen to a live feed of the debate at,, and, and on the radio on WJSU 88.5.

After the debate, there are two social functions worth attending: The Debate Afterparty will be at Tye's (120 N. Congress in Downtown), with live music by Homespun. Also, JFP will be hosting their "JFP Lounge" at Pi (Sal & Mookie's in Fondren).

If you're a Jackson voter, this is your chance to learn more about Crisler and Johnson. And if you live in the Jackson area, this is a great opportunity to get out and socialize with other plugged-in, thoughtful people like yourself.

It's a bitter pill (or something) to swallow, but some of us are going to the Hinds County Bar "Evening Honoring the Judiciary" (a bring-your-own-kneepads event). Please give us your reactions after the debate!
