Aguirre announces for open state House seat

TUPELO – Tupelo resident Shane Aguirre formally became the third candidate and the second Republican in the race for District 17 in the state House of Representatives.

This is the first foray into politics for Aguirre, 42, a comptroller for Community Eldercare.

“I have always been passionate about politics and the open seat is a chance for me to fulfill one of my dreams,” said Aguirre.

Brian Aldridge, a Republican who has represented House District 17 in the state Legislature since 2004, announced earlier this year that he would not seek re-election.
