PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) -

A former employee with the Pascagoula School District is now Pascagoula's newest Ward 1 council person.

According to Pascagoula Elections Clerk Brenda Reed, 79-year-old Marvin Pickett Senior defeated former Pascagoula councilman 84-year-old Robert Stallworth 103 to 94 Tuesday night.

Pascagoula city officials say, Pickett served on the city's strategic planning committee back in the 1980s.

Pickett fills the seat left vacant by Larry Taylor. Taylor left the council back in August to pursue a job in coaching in north Mississippi.
