Over 100 New Mayors

The recent municipal elections in Mississippi held quite a few surprises, the biggest of which for me was the number of incumbent mayors not reelected.  Although I’m still attempting to determine the exact number in that category I can tell you that there are over 100 “new” mayors.  I say “new” because there were a couple of instances where a former mayor ran again and was elected, Harvey Johnson of Jackson being the most well-known of these.  There are approximately 327 municipalities in Mississippi, which means that almost a third of them have new mayors.  That’s quite a percentage.
