Liveblogging the Jackson Democratic Mayoral Debate, Part 2

The two candidates are now on the stage. Crisler looked young and confident as he approached his lectern, Johnson looked old and wise. That's really going to be a theme throughout this race, I think.

Crisler gives his opening statement first, focusing on his energy and desire to "move Jackson forward." Johnson then claims credit (to some degree, correctly) for the projects we have seen come to fruition over the last 4 years.

First question is about Two Lakes, a project I care deeply about. Crisler voices his strong support for Two Lakes. Johnson says he's in favor of economic development along the Pearl River, but doesn't say exactly what type of project he'd like to see happen.
