Qualifying ends Friday for transportation post
Three seats are up for special elections which will be held January 11, 2011, but Marshall County voters will only vote for candidates running to replace the late Bill Minor.
The Mississippi Department of Transportation commissioner for the Northern District died November 1.
Elsewhere in Mississippi, candidates will be running for the vacant seats of Senate District 6 seat vacated by Sen. Alan Nunnelee of Tupelo and the House of Representatives District 116 seat vacated by Rep. Steven Palazzo of Biloxi. Both won seats in the U.S. House of Representatives in the November 2 election and both have resigned from the Legislature effective Monday, Nov. 29, according to press reports.
The qualifying deadline for the three special elections is 5 p.m. this Friday, Dec. 10, at the Secretary of State’s office. Runoff elections for the legislative seats, if any, will be held Feb. 1, 2011.
The winners of the three seats will serve until January 1, 2012 and the positions will be on the ballot again in 2011 as part of the regular election cycle.
Some candidates have already announced their intentions to seek the transportation commissioner’s post. The position represents 17 counties in North Mississippi.
