Southaven Mayor Running For Re-election In Midst of Legal Troubles

The Southaven mayor's civil trial over whether he misspent $170,000 taxpayer dollars was just continued until October. His criminal trial begins mid-August. In the midst of all this, Davis is running for re-election.
SOUTHAVEN, MS (abc24.com) - It's no secret that Southaven Mayor Greg Davis is involved in multiple legal battles.

The mayor's civil trial over whether he misspent $170,000 taxpayer dollars was just continued until October. His criminal trial begins mid-August. In the midst of all this, Davis is running for re-election.

If Davis is voted back into office, voters will be gambling on the outcome of his court cases. Davis has constantly said he's done nothing wrong, but he is facing three felony charges. If he is re-elected this summer, then later convicted of a felony, by state law he'll be removed from office.

"I really don't think he should be reelected," says Syldra Jones.

If he is, Southaven could be in for even more ups and downs with Davis.

"It's kind of a scandal," says Betty Herhalt.

Everyone has their own opinion about the controversy surrounding Davis the last two years.

"I have to think it's going to cause him to lose the election, at least I kinda hope so," Herhalt says.

"I don't think he should run again," adds Jones. "I think Southaven needs to go in another direction."

Voters aren't sure what will happen in the election, but the mayor's race is one of the most talked in years. They're wondering how it's going to play out.

"It does seem like he has support, so who knows what will happen," says Herhalt.

The general election is June 4th.
