Rep. Tommy Woods' retirement effective July 30
Veteran state legislator Tommy Woods of Byhalia said Thursday his retirement from the Mississippi House of Representatives will be effective July 30.
Woods, a Republican, announced earlier that he was retiring from the Legislature but said he delayed his departure at the behest of House Speaker Philip Gunn, R-Clinton, in case he was needed to vote in the event of a special legislative session.
“I talked with Speaker Gunn, and we decided that July 30 was the best date,” Woods said.
