Herman Veal started this petition to Citizens of Jackson, Ms.

I am a proud product of  Jackson, Mississippi. Grew up right there in Shady Oaks-on Newport St. I  attended Dawson, Brinkley and Callaway Schools. Therefore, though I am no longer a resident, I indeed have a third party vested interest in what's  occurring in my hometown. I have numerous relatives that continue to reside there.

It deeply saddens me that the current vitriol that is being spewed by  Councilman K. Stokes and Mayor C. Lumumba is adversely affecting the citizens who are in dire need of politicians  that place their welfare at the forefront of their elected official's  seemingly  selfish and misplaced concerns.

Deteriorating infrastructure-at all levels, families essentially being left to their own devices for weeks after the  catastrophic loss of drinkable water, vacant lots being used as dumping sites-the list of unacceptable conditions are too numerous to name.

All the above, compounded with what appears to be a laissez-faire attitude by state officials  as it relates to a pandemic that is  adversely affecting persons of color has produced a citizenry that is left to fend for itself.

IT IS ABUNDANTLY CLEAR that state officials will not provide the desired necessary appropriations to address dire need(s)- nor provide sound scientific guidance.

Where is the unified outcry from local officials? Have conflicting personalities harmed the people of Jackson?

IF SO,...

THIS CAN NOT AND MUST NOT CONTINUE!

I am calling on Mayor Chokwe Lumumba and Councilman Kenneth Stokes to set aside their differences and publically  display their willingness to BETTER SERVE their constituents through the development and implementation of city-wide plans to address each of the aforementioned issues.

I AM CALLING ON THE CITIZENS OF JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI to STAND UP and MAKE YOUR VOICES HEARD by signing this petition and having it serve  as a FRIENDLY REMINDER to the involved parties that YOU, the citizens of Jackson,  should be the SOLE REASON for their desire to serve.
