MCCOMB, Miss. (AP) - McComb voters will choose an alderman in a Tuesday runoff election.

16-year incumbent Melvin Joe Johnson faces challenger Donovan Hill.

Hill led Johnson by five votes in the May 6 primary, reports the Enterprise-Journal (https://bit.ly/1khzAEx), while a third candidate won a smaller share of the voted.

Johnson is pushing for pay raises for city employees and for the city to improve a local gymnasium. Hill is touting his youth and ability to reach a diverse group of voters. Hill is also calling for more educational and recreational activities for children and adults.

Donald Burks, who finished third and has challenged Johnson multiple times, has endorsed Hill.
