HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Three people, so far, have announced their plans to run for the District 102 House seat vacated by newly-elected Hattiesburg mayor Toby Barker.   

One of them is Hattiesburg lawyer Cory Ferraez, 28.  

He is an attorney with McHard, McHard, Anderson and Associates, PLLC.   

He said he is running because he has a passion for public service. 

He wants to help diversify Hattiesburg's economy by bringing in new manufacturing jobs. 

"We need a strong voice in Jackson who has the relationships already to actually make an impact in Hattiesburg and the goals that we need and the needs that we have moving forward," he said. 

Two other people, Kathryn Rehner and Missy Warren McGee, have also said they will seek that House seat.

Governor Bryant has not yet set a date for a special election.
