Lockley FelderIsaac Wins Nominations; elected bates

Quordiniah Lockley won the Democratic mayoral nomination from McComb, with the first-term incumbent beating former mayor Zach Patterson 725-580 in the second round of primaries on Tuesday.

Tabitha Felder Isaac won the overall manager nomination after beating former Ward 4 manager Melvin Joe Johnson 666-638.

And in Quarter 4, John Bates will be the next coach representing South McComb after beating Eddie Thompson 132-123.

The results are unofficial and uncertified and contain mail-in ballots but not sworn ballots, which were still counted Tuesday night at City Hall.

There were not enough sworn ballots to statistically impact the outcome of the races.

At the end of the second round, Lockley will face current Ward 2 manager Michael Cameron in the June 21 general election for mayor.

Bates has no other challenger ahead of him in the general election and will begin a four-year term in July. Bates will replace Shawn Williams, who finished in third place in the May 3 Democratic primary for mayor.

Felder Isaac will face Republican Jay DeSoto in the June 21 general election, with the winner replacing Donovan Hill, who did not run for office.
