Region residents named, retained on state boards

Hamp Smith and Ralph David Ritch say they did not seek positions on the state boards they currently serve on to garner political power or wealth.

Ritch laughs when asked how much he makes for serving on the Mississippi Board of Chiropractic Examiners.

“I couldn’t tell you,” said Ritch, who lives in Tupelo but since 1975 has operated a chiropractic clinic in Fulton.

Smith said he serves on the state Board of Contractors representing electrical contractors to help improve the contractor profession in the state and “to safeguard the consumers from unscrupulous contractors.”
