OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — There are now two candidates seeking the mayor’s post in a north Mississippi city.
With about two weeks before next month’s general election in Oxford, the race for mayor is now between incumbent Robyn Tannehill and 18-year-old challenger Brandon Pettis, both Independents.
The Oxford Eagle reports Republican candidate Kyle Davis withdrew from the race on Friday, citing an employment opportunity.
In addition to the mayor's race, all seven alderman seats are up for grabs in the June 8 election.
