      Supports Mike Ezell for U.S. 4th Congressional District Representative for Mississippi

      The Professional Firefighters Association of Mississippi supports the election campaign for Mike Ezell for U.S. 4th Congressional District Representative.

      Mike Ezell is a proven leader as Sheriff of Jackson County and is a long-time supporter of first responders in the State of Mississippi. With 42 years of law enforcement experience, he has worked hard for the residents of Jackson County. 

      Mike Ezell is goal-oriented and transparent as a community leader. He has first-hand experience in local government and he knows what it takes to fight for our communities. We have no doubt he will continue that commitment if elected Congressman of the 4th District in Mississippi.  He will stand up, show up, and be accountable – getting things done for Mississippi!
