Democrats Try to Kick Independent Off Ballot

A hearing has been set for next week in the challenge over an independent Meridian mayoral candidate.

The candidacy of Walter Patton has been challenged by three local prominent Democrats, Melba Clark, Stephen Wilson and John Flowers.

The three say that some of the people who signed Patton's petition to run didn't know what they were doing.

Meridian City Clerk Ed Skipper says a hearing over the challenge will be held Monday, Apr. 15.
