JACKSON, Tenn. — Even after the final results came in Tuesday night, Lowe Finney’s supporters stuck around his headquarters with their heads held high after this hard fought race. Finney said that although he will not be leading the city over the next four years there is still plenty for Jackson to rally around. “This has been a long hard race but that doesn’t mean there isn’t more work to do,” Finney said. “I ask my supporters to get behind Mr. Gist because there are a lot of issues in Jackson and it’s going to take everyone going forward.” During his concession speech, Finney said that although the race didn’t end in his favor, he was extremely proud of the campaign that was run. He also touched on voter turn-out, saying how rewarding it was to see so many people excited about Jackson’s future. Finney also said he was excited to be able to spend some more time back home with his wife and young son.
