Primary run-off Tuesday
Tunica County voters in a pair of supervisor districts return to the polls next Tuesday, August 25, for the Democratic Party primary run-off election.
The first primary on August 4 failed to produce clear winners in Districts 2 and 3.
In District 2, where there is no incumbent in the race, Robert Leflore, Jr. and Major Taylor, Jr. are vying for a spot on the November ballot with Independent candidates Lynn Henson, Michael Johnson, Jr., Barbara Tuchel and Perry Turner, Sr. In District 3, incumbent Phillis Williams faces challenger Evada Bullock. The winner still must run in November against Independent Keith Willis.
Conservator prioritizes leadership, teaching
It’s already a month beyond the date Dr. Margie Pulley became Conservator of Education for the Tunica County School District, and the walls in her office are still bare, but her desk is covered with files to review, paperwork to sign, and materials to read. In other words, she is busy – very busy.
As the school year kicks off, Pulley shared the district’s goals, current enrollment, current teacher needs, and changes in administration. On every front, things are looking more positive for the district that recently underwent the abolishment of its governing board and superintendent.
