Until this week's Selma News, I was the only candidate for town council with an ad in the paper. Today, Jackie Lacy's quarter page ad showed up along with Debbie Johnson's ad with red outline and print. My third ad was in the paper, as well. Charles Hester's ad was a full page color ad taking up the back cover this time. I know how much Jackie paid for her ad, since I was quoted that rate when I was looking at placing ad space. I have no idea what prime placement of a full page color ad would run. The things you can do when you have the money.
Speaking of the mayoral candidates, here are the results so far of the mayoral race poll on "The Selma News" web site. Here are the poll results according to my web site.
