Port commissioner Turnage resigns
State port commissioner Frances Turnage has resigned from the five-member board, commission president Jim Simpson confirmed Tuesday.
Simpson said that Turnage emailed late Friday about her resignation. She has retired from Mississippi Power and intends to relocate to be nearer her grandchildren, he said. She will no longer be living in Harrison County.
Simpson said he understands the resignation is effective immediately. Turnage
is not expected to attend the port commission's meeting set for Wednesday morning at Hancock Bank, he said.
