Political announcement
NATCHEZ — Mike Lazarus is announcing his candidacy for re-election to the office of Adams County Board of Supervisors District 1.
Lazarus is seeking his third term as supervisor and running as a Democrat. Lazarus currently serves as vice president, a position he has held for the past four years.
Currently, as supervisor, Lazarus and the other supervisors oversee a budget of more than $24 million. This year, the budget for Adams County has decreased by more than $1 million since 2011 because of cutting expenses and putting a stop to wasteful spending.
As a two-term supervisor, Lazarus has a record of achieving goals and standing up for what is right.
Lazarus is a board member of Keep Natchez Adams County Beautiful, Miss-Lou Regional Steering Committee, Southwest Planning and Development, Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce Business of the Month Committee and a member of Community Alliance.
Lazarus graduated from South Natchez High School and attended the University of Southern Mississippi. He has owned and operated Lazarus Arts for more than 17 years. He has been married to the former Kim Krueger for 31 years. He has two sons, Michael and his wife, Candice, and Rudy, a student at Mississippi State University, and two grandsons, Taylor and Walker.
Over the last seven years, Lazarus and his fellow supervisors have made a true commitment to improving the infrastructure in Adams County by spending approximately $4 million on road resurfacing in and outside the city limits. The year alone two substandard bridges in District 1 will be replaced.
“Economic growth in Adams County has finally become a reality. The last four years has seen our port facilities expand and experience growth and prosperity like never before and new industries are continuing to come to Adams County and existing industries expanding. This is why leadership and experience is crucial at this time. Many relationships have been formed that will continue to move Adams County forward. At this time, I humbly ask for your consideration and support so we can continue to make Adams County the home we can all be proud of and provide opportunities for our children.
“As your supervisor, I will continue to make myself available to all the residents of Adams County. My cell number is 601-597-4576, office is 601-445-4576 and home is 601-442-8403,” Lazarus said.
