Incumbent and embattled mayor Greg Davis, the independent, is looking for his fifth term in office.

"I salute all politicians as long as they do the right thing," one citizen said.
Trying to find voters in Southaven who care and who will be headed to the polls on Tuesday is pretty tough. In this city of 50,000 people in the primary and runoff elections leading up to Tuesday, only about 6,000 people voted. That is only about one in ten people.
Voter turnout by some has been described as light and pathetic.
"Not a big issue for me personally," one Southaven resident said.
And even if you do find someone who will be voting in Tuesday's general election, good luck trying to figure who they might be voting for.
"Well as long as they make the right choice, I am sure the city will be satisfied," another citizen said.
And then there were some who took the less than positive attitude that going to the polls was just in general...fruitless and pointless.
"Politicians all of them are dirty," one Southaven voter said. "Well I think if they ain't crooked before they go in, they are going to be crooked when they get out."
