DeSoto commissioners cancel special election

In a surprise move, the DeSoto County Election Commissioners Monday requested to scrub or cancel the Special Election scheduled for Nov. 7, due to the fact only one candidate qualified to run for the Office of Circuit Court Judge, County Court Judge and Prosecuting Attorney.

Danny Klein, Chairman of the Election Commission, on behalf of his board, asked that the DeSoto County Board of Supervisors appoint the candidate, Craig Treadway, as County Court Judge and James Holland as Prosecuting Attorney to fill the unexpired terms of these positions, which will run, effectively, until 2019.
