Doug Anderson Resigns Hinds Board

By R.L. Nave

Hinds County District 2 Supervisor Doug Anderson has resigned from the board.

Anderson, who has been in poor health since suffering two small strokes over the summer, often missed board meetings and rarely spoke when he did attend.

A former state lawmaker in the Mississippi House and Senate, Anderson joined the board in 1993.

The board members can appoint a temporary replacement until a special election can be held next fall.
