Qualifying continues for municipal elections
Only one additional candidate, since last week’s newspaper, has qualified to seek municipal positions in this year’s elections.
In Holly Springs, Calvin James, who currently serves as alderman of Ward 2, has qualified to run for the alderman at-large position.
Also there was a spelling mistake last week in the name of one of the candidates entering the race for Ward 3 alderman – Gary Tunstall. The newspaper apologizes for the error.
No additional candidates qualified in Byhalia, and no one has signed up to run for municipal races yet in Potts Camp.
The deadline for qualifying is Friday, March 8, at 5 p.m.
