Supporters of Mayor John Robert Smith joined him for the opening of his campaign headquarters Thursday.

The new office is located in downtown Meridian at 611 22nd Avenue.

"There's a good crowd is here and lots of enthusiasm," said Smith. "I'm happy that former Congressman Sonny Montgomery is here and Congressman Chip Pickering sent a note, but the best part is the good people behind me that mean so much."

Smith is seeking reelection to a fourth term in office. Retired businessman Wally Hudnall is opposing Smith in the Republican primary.

Lauderdale County District 2 supervisor Jimmie Smith is also running for mayor, along with radio personality Harrison Lewis.
