“I am truly honored to receive the endorsement of Jesse White,” McKinney said. “Jesse is a true public servant, and I have always admired the charitable work he has done over the years and I have tried to emulate his generosity and involvement in community projects. A big reason I am running for office is because of people like Jesse White. It means a great deal to me to have his support.”
