Forrest County election commissioner resigns




FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - One of Forrest County's youngest election commissioners is stepping down from his post.

The Board of Supervisors accepted District 1 commissioner Tyler Wood's resignation on Monday, though Wood was not present at the meeting.

"I want to thank all of my supporters who elected me to the position of Election Commissioner for Forrest County District One," Wood wrote in a Facebook post on Monday afternoon. "I'm sorry to say that I have turned in my resignation papers this morning because of personal reasons. I feel like it was God's will for me to get elected and defeat Charles Phillips and now I'm being called in a different direction."

Wood, 18, was elected in November 2016 and topped incumbent Charlie Phillips for the District 1 position as Forrest County Election Commissioner.
