Biloxi Councilman Felix Gines moving to the Republican party

A member of the Biloxi City Council is switching parties.

Mississippi Republican Chairman Frank Bordeaux and elected leaders gathered at the Biloxi Visitors Center to welcome Biloxi Ward 2 Councilman Felix Gines to the Republican party.

Councilman Gines says he’s switching from the Democratic party to the Republican party because he’s always held conservative values and believes.

He says today’s Republican party is more in line with his views. “Coming from a family of 11, you know how to scratch a dollar, and you know what a true conservative is all about… and so that’s what I’m all about. Making sure we have good government, and good spending practices.”

Councilman Gines went on to say that it’s an honor and privilege to be accepted into the Republican party.
