Charter schools opponent moved off House Education

Speaker Philip Gunn recently moved Democrat Linda Whittington of Schlater off the Education Committee and made her vice chairwoman of the Tourism Committee.

The move comes after the resignation of Republican Rep. Tommy Woods of Byhalia.

Gunn says Whittington’s new assignment should help the Delta and create more diversity by putting a Democratic woman into a vice chairmanship.
