Meridian's mayoral candidates met in a forum Thursday night, sponsored by the Meridian-Lauderdale County NAACP.
Organization president, The Rev. Milton Johnson, said it's important for the public to be informed about candidates for office.
"To learn community infrastructure, jobs, workforce. We're trying to let the community know where these candidates are coming from and where they stand," Johnson said.
The primaries are May 5. There is only one Republican candidate, Cheri Barry. Four Democrats will be on the ballot, Percy Bland, William Compton, Joe Norwood and Casandra Sloan.
