STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI)- The new legislative session is less than a week away, and for District 38 state representative Cheikh Taylor, this will be his first.
Taylor said being the state representative for District 38 is a dream come true.
He’s taking over the seat after longtime state representative Tyrone Ellis stepped down back in June.
Though he’ll be a new face at the capital, Taylor is eager to begin serving his new term.
“I’m hopeful because I’m new at this, but I can tell you from some of the things I’ve heard and seen so far that we are in for a fight,” said Taylor.
