Vicksburg officials toss mayoral candidate over residency

An independent candidate for mayor of Vicksburg has been disqualified, with city election officials saying she lives outside the city limits.

The Vicksburg Post reports the city Election Commission on Friday announced Jennifer Thomas’ disqualification, after a complaint was filed by the city Democratic Party officials.

Chris Green, a lawyer for Thomas, says she will appeal to circuit court.
