Morris announces candidacy

Published 4:23 pm Friday, July 27, 2007

I, Ceddy Morris, would like to announce my candidacy for the office of East District Constable in Pearl River County on the Republican ticket.

I feel that my experience in law enforcement qualifies me to be a constable in Pearl River County. Most of my law enforcement experience has been with the Pearl River County Sheriff’s Department. I have worked in law enforcement for seven years and held the position of dispatcher, public school resource officer and deputy sheriff. I would like to serve as your constable enforcing the laws of Pearl River County; therefore, I am asking for your vote.

If elected, I promise to make my presence as constable known in the county. I will work hard to uphold the laws and perform the duties of constable. I will assist local law enforcement in the fight against drugs and motor vehicle violations in the east district by regularly policing our communities.
