Just after the holiday, on Tuesday, voters in most of Marshall County and all of Tate County will have the opportunity to go to the polls to select a state senator to represent them.
Neil Whaley, a Potts Camp businessman/cattleman and Sharon Gipson, a Holly Springs attorney and former alderwoman, were the top two vote-getters in the Nov. 7 special election to fill the District 10 seat.
Whaley, 29, was the top vote-getter on Nov. 7 with 2,236 votes, or 35 percent of the total. Gipson finished second in the five-candidate field with 30 percent of the total. A majority was needed to avoid a runoff.
