Next Jackson mayor will have big effect on JPS

The Clarion-Ledger, 3/9/9

The next mayor of Jackson will have a hand in keeping or replacing all five Jackson school board members.

One board member’s term ended last week. Two other members’ terms ended more than a year ago. The remaining two board members’ terms will end during the next mayor’s four years in office.

Mayor Frank Melton said nominations probably will be on the agenda when the City Council meets Tuesday.

But Melton, who is running for re-election, likely won’t see his nominees confirmed.

“Quite frankly, I am not sure whether we would seriously entertain any appointments between now and June 30,” City Council President Leslie McLemore said.
