Jackson County Republican Sheriff Mike Ezell is announcing he’ll run for Congress in Mississippi’s Fourth District.

Im compelled to do everything I can to ensure that our families live in a country that still
believes in public safety, law and order, individual rights and liberties, ethics and integrity, and a
free market economy that rewards hard work. If were going to tackle the problems facing
America, we need someone in Congress with the unique background and firsthand experience of dealing with the most pressing issues facing our country, he stated.

Sheriff Ezell has served as Jackson County Sheriff since 2014. He has 40 years of experience in law enforcement including working in the Pascagoula Police Department, Chief of Police of Ocean Springs and Sheriff of Jackson County.

During his remarks, Ezell discussed why hes running for Congress, his experience and qualifications to tackle the issues facing America, and also encouraging voters to join his campaign.

As a husband, father and grandfather, Im very concerned about the future of our country and
the direction that Washington is trying to take us. I believe its time we all ask ourselves what
type of country is America today, and what will it be in the future, Ezell said. I believe
President Trumps policies had us moving in the right direction, and I am alarmed that President
Biden and his allies are trying to undo every success of the last four years.

Im running for Congress because I believe in the American way of life, and my experience in
law enforcement and as Jackson County Sheriff has prepared me to go to Washington and fight
back against those who seek to radically change this great country, Ezell stated. I look forward
to meeting as many of my fellow citizens as possible in the Fourth Congressional District in the
course of this campaign and hope to earn your vote.

By auditing the equipment and spending of the Jackson County Sheriffs Department, Sheriff
Ezell led the effort to recover 65 cars in his first year, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in
just gas expenses, and returned over one million dollars to the county in his first and second
years.

While serving, Ezell graduated from the Mississippi Law Enforcement Training Academy and
obtained a degree in criminal justice from the University of Southern Mississippi. He was also
selected to attend the FBI National Academy and later worked with the FBI on their Safe Streets
Task Force. He is an active member of the Jackson County Republican Club and the Mississippi
Sheriffs Association. Sheriff Ezell and his wife, Suzette, live in Pascagoula and are active
members of First Baptist Church of Pascagoula. They have one daughter and a granddaughter.
