I’m Darren Musselwhite and I’m running for Mayor of Southaven.
It’s simple…Southaven needs a new leader that can unify our city again. We need someone that has no divisive personal agendas. It’s time to stop the fighting among our city’s leaders, put to rest the negative publicity that currently surrounds us, and move forward with what’s best for our city.
I’ve never had political aspirations, but recently, many people who are genuinely concerned about Southaven have come to me and asked for my help. It made me think, and I realize that it’s time that I make a bigger impact and help my hometown.
I’m a Southaven boy. No one has more of a personal interest in this place than I do. I moved here in 1968 when I was six-months old, grew up here, started my business here, and my wife and I are raising our family here. Southaven has been good to me and I’ve always been proud to represent my hometown.
Southaven needs a disciplined fiscally-minded leader who can be trusted to do what is best for Southaven at all times. We need someone who understands money, budgets, and the importance of responsible spending. I know the difference between my money and yours, and I understand what it means to be a “steward” of someone else’s money.
Southaven also needs someone who is good for business. I’ve proven that I understand what it takes to succeed in business. I also realize that Southaven has been a success story already. It’s just time for us to turn the page and begin writing the next chapter.
And finally, Southaven needs someone who recognizes the great people that already work for our city, and that most things here are not broken.
Again, I’ve never had any political aspirations. My only agenda is to do what is best for Southaven, and right now, my city needs me. If you want me, let me know, and I will go to work! Thank you.
