Just a few hours after a judge called for a special election in the Hattiesburg mayoral race, Dave Ware's campaign headquarters reopened to the public.
Ware's campaign manager David Morris says that the office, located on Hardy Street, will operate normal business hours, opening every morning at 9 a.m. Yard signs and window decals will be available for Ware supporters to display leading up to the special election, which does not yet have a set date.
"One thing that we've been consistent on- and it's been totally sincere- is that our only objective is making sure that the will of the voters be known," says Morris. "Judge Coleman has seen fit to give us that opportunity, so here we go."
Judge William Coleman declared Thursday a special election must be held to determine the will of the voters. This decision comes after mayoral candidate Dave Ware filed motions asking courts to declare him the winner of the June 4 election.
