Despite submitting paperwork to run in the city of Jackson's special election for mayor, two individuals have been removed for not meeting requirements to seek the office.
Tonya Brooks of Valley North Boulevard
Tammie Patterson of Carleton Street.
That shaves the number of people seeking the office down to 13.
The election is April 8.
A runoff, which is expected, between the top votegetters would be on April 22.
