Hub City Councilwoman's e-mail hints at mayoral bid

HATTIESBURG,MS (WDAM) - An e-mail from Delgado to friends and family indicates she is running for Mayor of Hattiesburg.

She is asking her supporters to contribute $25 a month, starting now, for six months to her campaign. The email doesn't specify whether Delgado is referring to a possible special election in the event current Mayor Johnny DuPree becomes governor, or the next mayor's race in 2013. The email also includes a PayPal link to make contributions.

According to the email, "The simple theme and message of the Delgado campaign for mayor is bringing government back to the people. I truly believe honesty, integrity, and hard work will win every time." End quote. The e-mail also contains 15 points of her campaign platform, which include, quote: "Top notch customer service for citizens, efficient city services, complete street and infrastructure overhaul, full partnership between the city and the public school system, and government transparency."

Delgado refused to talk to WDAM on camera about her campaign but said in a phone conversation today there has been no formal announcement about her possible candidacy.

Councilman Dave Ware has also been mentioned as a potential mayoral candidate in 2013. When asked today, Ware was non committal.
