Special election set for Noxubee superintendent

By The Associated Press

JACKSON — Noxubee County voters will choose a superintendent of schools in an April 3 special election.

Gov. Phil Bryant announced the election date on Thursday.

A news release from Bryant’s office says a circuit court determined in January that a special election is needed because some absentee ballots were not properly processed in the August 2011 Democratic primary for Noxubee superintendent.

No other party fielded a candidate for superintendent in the November 2011 general election.

The school district’s website says Roger W. Lidell is superintendent.
