I am very saddened that Jackson, Mississippi Mayor Frank Melton passed away early this morning. For those of you not from Mississippi, Melton was controversial over many things but he was a man of passion and conviction. You definitely knew where he stood on certain issues. He was about removing drugs, drug dealers, and crime from the streets. I always loved him because I felt he truly was concerned with our school and education system. You will be missed. Thank you for all the good things you accomplished for the city of Jackson.
