O'Hara Tours State

By  | 

Reform party gubernatorial candidate Shawn O'Hara of Hattiesburg, campaigned in Meridian Wednesday. It's the sixth in eight-city swing through the state.

O'Hara said the reform party reaches out to women and minorities his platform is based on five key issues.

"We need to lower gasoline prices, provide free college internet classes, insure that women receive equal pay for equal work," O'Hara said. "We need to put prisoners to work, cap lawsuits to protect doctors and others. Also we need to stop racial profiling in the state of Mississippi."

It's the fourth time O'Hara has sought the governor's office.

The reform party will have its national convention in Mississippi this year, on the Gulf Coast, October 10-12.
