RIDGELAND, MS (WLBT) - Ridgeland's longtime mayor has officially launched his campaign for a sixth term. Gene McGee announced his candidacy this morning at the new craft center on Rice Road.
McGee became mayor in 1989, and he recently helped draft a long-term master plan for the city.
He says that plan has led to big developments, like along Highland Colony Parkway, while taxes have remained relatively low.
Mayor McGee faces fellow Republican Cassandra Walter in the May 5th primary.
