Hood: Houston office has gone smoothly

State Attorney General Jim Hood said his office has not been disrupted by his decision to move back to Chickasaw County and work primarily out of a newly opened office in Houston.

Hood, the state’s only statewide elected Democrat, spoke of the decision to move back home and a litany of other issues Monday at the Mississippi State University Stennis Institute/Capitol press corps luncheon in Jackson.

When Hood announced in late July his intention to move back home, he said he would use space in his father’s law office on the square in Houston rent-free as a northern satellite office that would be his primary work space. But he said upon further reflection, he feared that would put too much stress on his father’s law practice so he opted to rent space.

Hood already has an office on the Gulf Coast, and he said he had long believed there needed to be one in north Mississippi.
