Political showdown likely in Lumberton

LUMBERTON, MS (WDAM) - The town of Lumberton is headed for a major political showdown this summer.

A member of the board of aldermen who mayor Larry Strahan sees as his biggest nemesis may be running against him in the race for mayor.

According to the City Clerk's Office, Alderwoman Miriam Holder is one of two people who have picked up qualifying packets to run against the mayor. The other is Lumberton resident Al Young.

The mayor's seat, as well as all aldermen's seats, are up for grabs in this year's election.

Several people have picked up qualifying packets for the various alderman seats including Ward Three Alderman Quincy Rogers. It is unclear if the Aldermen from the other three wards will run for re-election.

Candidates have until March 6 to qualify.
