City Council candidates in Tupelo’s Wards 5 and 7 will meet in Tuesday party runoffs.
The Ward 5 race between two Republicans, incumbent Bill Martin and challenger Jonny Davis, will determine the council representative, since the winner will have no opponent in the June 2 general election.
In Ward 7, Willie Allen and Willie Jennings compete for the Democratic nomination. The winner faces Republican incumbent Berdell Jones on June 2.
