Brown claims win in tight judge’s race
By BARRY BURLESON
Just 16 votes separated the candidates in the justice court judge North District race last week.
Officials results show incumbent Eugene Brown Jr. narrowly keeping his seat. He received 1,033 votes in the Marshall County Democratic Primary Runoff Election to Mae Garrison’s 1,017.
Brown has no opponent in the November 6 general election.
Other Marshall County winners in the primary on August 28 were James Richard Anderson and Juanita M. Dillard.
Anderson, with 2,823 votes, defeated incumbent coroner John Garrison, who had 2,612. Anderson moves on to face Independent candidate Bobby L. Watson in November.
Dillard was elected tax assessor. She will not have an opponent on the general election ballot. She received 3,015 votes to Donna Fitch Olita’s 2,526.
Bill Stone claimed the Democratic nomination for the Senate, District 2 position. He beat Henry Boyd Jr. 2,822 to 2,614 in Marshall County. District-wide, the totals were 7,926 for Stone and 4,379 for Boyd.
Stone won 2,446 to 1,027 in Benton County and 2,658 to 738 in Tippah County.
Stone meets Republican incumbent Ralph Doxey in the November 6 general election.
In the only state-wide race on Marshall County’s ballot last week, Mike Sumrall received 2,559 votes in the county to Todd Brand’s 1,881.
Sumrall also got the Democratic nod state-wide. His opponent in November will be Republican candidate Stacey Pickering.
The deadline to register to vote in the November 6 general election is October 5, according to circuit clerk Lucy Carpenter. Those who register by mail must have their forms postmarked no later than October 5.
Voter registration forms are available at Byhalia City Hall, Potts Camp Town Hall and at the circuit clerk’s office in the courthouse in Holly Springs.
Democratic, Republican and Independent candidates for offices will all be on the same ballot in November.
