Bill Billingsley has announced his intentions to run for the District 25 State Senate seat in 2015.
The district includes much of Madison and Ridgeland, as well as eight precincts in northeast Jackson.
“I believe that the more people participate at all levels of government, from voting to serving, the better our government will be,” Billingsley said. “I believe it’s especially important for people with a business background to seek elective office. Government needs to run like a business, and I think I can help that happen in the Senate.”
Billingsley is the former owner and COO of Gilbert’s Home Health and Hospice and is a member of the Madison County Republican Party Executive Committee.
The seat is currently occupied by Will Longwitz of Madison.
