PURVIS, Miss. (AP) - The proposed city of Bellevue has gained the official support of one of Lamar County’s most famous residents.

On Wednesday, three-time NFL MVP and Super Bowl-winning quarterback Brett Favre to sign a petition in favor of incorporating what would be the county’s fifth city.

The Hattiesburg American reports (https://hatne.ws/1L5E7I9) Favre signed the petition in front of a crowd of about 20.

The petition began circulating in late August, after a meeting of the Lamar County Board of Supervisors during which the Citizens of Bellevue made a presentation outlining the details and benefits of the proposed city.

That group is working to gather the signatures of at least two-thirds of the registered voters in the area, as that document must be filed in chancery court as part of the incorporation procedures.
