Local government changes in Madison County

MADISON COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) – The Madison County Board of Supervisors ousting their current president, Trey Baxter, voting to elect someone new each year instead.

That’s despite the Attorney General’s statements that the position should be a four year term.

“The Attorney General, that I love dearly – he gives opinion. Not law,” said Madison County District 5 Supervisor Paul Griffin.

This turnover comes amid Baxter’s push to investigate Madison County’s Economic Development Authority.
