Rod Hickman is from up the road in Macon, Mississippi.

He is a law professor at both Tougaloo College and the Mississippi University for Women, a part-time prosecutor for Noxubee County, and owns his own law firm.

Hickman said when the District 32 seat became open, he felt he would be a good fit.

“I want to represent each and every county that makes up district 32. I want to represent all four counties as strongly as any county. Secondly, I want to make sure I’m visible in each county. I want to get there. I need to know the needs of the people. It’s important for me to know what the people need because this is not a position that is me as a representative position. I represent the people. So, one of the things I would definitely want to do is get into one of these counties see what the needs of the people are, and make those things happen,” said Hickman.
