Who Will Be Biloxi’s New Mayor?

Probably no one!

Mayor A.J. Holloway already showed his hand and announced he wants to keep the job and become a five-term mayor. “I have every intention of continuing to serve the people of Biloxi,” he said.

Since Biloxi is a betting town, the wagers around town are that Ward 4 Councilman Mike Fitzpatrick will run for the job along with Ward 2 Councilman Bill Stallworth. Harrison County Supervisor Connie Rockco is still a roll of the dice, since she would have to decide between serving the county or the city.

Other possible candidates are just starting to consider a campaign for mayor, including Andrew “FoFo” Gillich Jr., who ran a close race with Holloway in 2001, and state Rep. Michael Janus, who said “if Mayor Holloway does not run I’ll consider tossing my hat into the ring. I’m not going to run against him.”

Damn there must be some major benefits to being the mayor of Biloxi (can anyone say casinos).
