GOVERNOR BARBOUR SETS HOUSE SPECIAL ELECTION DATE FOR NOV. 17
Governor Haley Barbour today set a Nov. 17 election date for the District 117 vacancy in the State House of Representatives.
The qualifying deadline for the district in Harrison County is Oct. 18. If a run-off is necessary, it will be held on Dec. 8.
The office became open Sept. 28 when Michael Janus resigned from the House to take the post as city manager for D’Iberville. There are two years remaining in the current term of office.
