TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - A candidate for Circuit Court judge in District 1 has had to change his campaign signs.

Kelly Mims was told to remove the word “judge” from signs, billboards and push cards. It’s a move he complied with.

The order states Mims failed to clarify he is the municipal court judge in Plantersville and not currently in the office he is seeking.

The decision was handed down Monday by the Office of Judicial Performance’s Special Committee on Judicial Election Campaign Intervention.
